Wow! This place is super yummy. We tried the Waterman's Platter and the blackened North Carolina Trout. The trout was perfect as was the catfish. And can we take a minute to appreciate the hush puppies?! They were like a dessert! The atmosphere was relaxing, with good music and pleasant staff! Oh!!! And don't forget to try the Ghost pepper Pomegranate Margarita!!! That was delicious! And thank you to our sweet waitress who gave me a good recommendation for a nail salon!

I can't say enough about this place. Service is always on point. The rooftop bar area is awesome. The food is always on point. All of the food is good. I haven't had a bad meal yet at this place. Low key, their burger is one of the best in the city. The quality of the beef is fantastic and it's always super juicy.

Visited today for lunch as first timers. The food and service were great. My family had the fish and chips, gumbo, oyster platter, fish tacos and oyster tacos. Everything came out hot and fresh. Great portion sizes as well, we actually had leftovers. I was especially impressed by the gumbo. It was hot and flavorful with the right amount of spice. We had about a 25 minute wait but it was worth it. We sat outside and our server was awesome and recommended a few things. The brunch punch was tasty as well. We will definitely return to try a few more menu items.

I liked this place. Nice rooftop. Good service. Good food. Nice atmosphere. The mac-n-cheese was spicy so it wasn't appropriate for my kid and the menu didn't state that it was spicy. Otherwise, nothing but a great experience here. I would go back!

Would give 0 stars if able. Horrible, Horrible, Horrible. My coworkers and I ordered from here and this was my first and last experience. The platter is $28, all the fried items looked burnt and were overcooked. Shrimp, fish, oysters, and hush puppies were piled on top of each other in the same container. The fries were in a plastic foil bag, making them very soggy. One platter was missing the fish. The salmon wrap was wet and soggy. Just a very poor presentation with everything ordered.
