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.

I had the chicken sandwich. My daughter salmon tacos. We shared a spicy shrimp appetizers. I wish I had taken a picture. Not only was my sandwich delicious; crunchy on the outside. Tender and juicy on the inside, it was also flavorful. The appetizer was so good that I got an order to go. And, the service was great too.

Excellent food and Awesome service! We enjoyed several different types of raw oysters. All were juicy and obviously extremely fresh. They were pretty busy, but our server, Sasha, was great. She let us know that after the switch from lunch to dinner, several different bottles of wine would be 1/2 half off, which was not posted anywhere. One of our appetizers took longer than expected, as they only had one person shucking the oysters. We had enough other items that it was no issue to us, but the Manager, Jake, brought them to us. He apologized and explained why it was delayed. He said there would be no charge for it and gave us three $10 gift cards. Totally unexpected, but a pleasant surprise. Jake really went above and beyond. Between him, Sasha and the food, it was a wonderful experience. Thanks so much!

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.
