Had lobster roll for $30.00 was so so, with a scoop of mayo on top of the lobster. There was so much salt on the homemade chips you not eat them.
Had to ask for a server. The first server wore sunglasses and advised us he would try and find someone to help us as he was leaving for the day.
We ordered a pitcher of drinks which was mostly ice and the server did not fill the glasses.
The donuts which were suppose to be homemade were basically all the same with different toppings put on them. They were stale.
Will not be back .
The second server did a great job. But the food has gone down hill from the first time I ate here.

Top to bottom fantastic! We sat on the patio and it was lovely. Our waiters were so friendly, funny, and nice. And the food. Y’all. We had oysters - delicious and fresh and flavorful - and calamari - perfectly battered salty flavor bombs - and *lobster rolls* - swoon. The lobster rolls were heaven. The bun is decadently buttery and the lobster meat is juicy and soft. Amazing. To end we had the caramel apple cake. Holy moly. It was heated up and kind of like bread pudding. I cannot wait to come back!!!

I am not going to take off for the fact that there is no birthday protocol. But don't expect anything extra if you are celebrating a birthday. The food was amazing and the service was great. The Red Snapper was incredible and the lobster roll was worth the price. Overall it was a great experience for myself and my girlfriend.

I really enjoyed my outing at Battlecat...although I originally I was scheduled to be seating upstairs I enjoyed my time downstairs more. I ordered an Old Fashion and was shocked that it was on tap ...but it was blended very good ....later on I had the conch fritters and the lobster roll...and both were outstanding ....I will return soon.

Doughnuts were Delicious. Mine did but hold up for later. So maybe do not bring them home. Bacon grits were good but I could not eat more than 5 bits. It’s cool to try but I don’t have to go back.

Took a while to get a server after being seated. Drink was empty long before offered a refil. Music was aggressive and loud. Waiter was kind of obnoxious. But on the positive side, food was tasty and there was enough waitstaff that I generally could flag someone down.

I felt ignored by my server. It’s a pet peeve to be handed a check without asking how the meal was or offering dessert or a drink refill. That is a loss of revenue guaranteed.

Highly recommend the donut brunch! If I were to go back for this, I would get exactly what I ordered again: champagne punch, green eggs & ham (eggs scrambled with avocado so they're actually green), and donuts! I was able to sample different donuts with my friends and they were all awesome.

It was amazing. Our service was ok. I just hope our waitress washed her hands after petting a dog and then bringing us refills right after. But the atmosphere there was great! I will most definitely go back!

Top-notch hospitality in a relaxed atmosphere is how some would describe this place, but to me, it was much more. From the time I reached out to grab the front door, until the last bite, and as we left, we felt like rockstars! Jake was wonderful with his selections and insight throughout the meal, as was the rest of the staff. Nothing seemed off, and time was lost from having too much fun drinking the fabulous cocktails. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to impress, since the food matched the service! As this review comes to a close, I will leave you with a must tidbit; get. the. mussels.

The evening was great overall. Had the Lobster Roll with the potato chips, dessert was good, and cocktails were good, but felt a bit overpriced for the amount that was served.
