Had wonderful seafood (again) where we've always had excellent food and good times. The only downside this time was where we were seated - it was more noisy than normal (small children) and if we had been seated elsewhere in the restaurant, it would have been different (the restaurant was only half-filled as it was a Monday evening).

For the past several years this is THE place for my birthday dinner. The miso sea bass is phenomenal. Our service was superior as Terrance knew everything seasonal and just so friendly. The entire menu is special and one cannot pass up the pre-meal bead. Just a great place in A2.

Took an hour just to order, we barely saw our waiter. Then the food took another hour just to get apps. Overall very average food quality too, I felt it was on par with red lobster. We had a party of 6 and none of us thought it was any more than average, at best.

I was kind of disappointed in the food. Ambiance is nice and in a good location on Main St. My Paella was just so so and my husbands fish was overcooked. Our grandchildren got the Miso glazed Chilean sea bass which they thought was good. I tasted it and I've had much better at several other restaurants including Mitchell's in Birmingham.
The lobster in my paella was good and I think I just should have ordered a whole lobster which was the special that night.

Our drinks, appetizers, and desserts were very good. Salads and main course were lacking. I found the house dressing and salad to be bitter. Ordered Paella Valencia and was very dissapointed. It was not the classic recipe. The rice was not flavorful. Nice lobster and shellfish, but very bland. Could not find one piece of chorizo in the dish. Lots of liquid in bottom of dish. Also had new england clam chowder that also missed the mark. Nice waiter but we go for the food. Probably wont return

Very pricey for what we got. Cole slaw was flavorless and my red skin potatoes were dry and chewy Like they have been sitting under a heater lamp and made hours before. I eat fish at many restaurants and I’ve had many wonderful fish dinners with veggies for under $20 and this restaurant was very pricey. I got a trout and it was 24.95 without any fresh veggies and flavorless coleslaw. Came recommended so I was sad that the experience and the cost Made us sad!

Our food was cold. My husband got an extremely small portion of perch and paid $1 less than my whole lobster. Parts of my lobster were tough to cut. Over the past few visits we’ve noticed the portions have gotten smaller but the prices higher, the Blue Plate Special as a specific example. This has always been our go to restaurant for special occasions but have decided to try another next time.

Arrived a bit late for dinner (2100) and ordered oysters and two entries (king crab and stuffed salmon). Oysters and salad came out quickly but had an issue with the salmon - seems the first try didn't meet their standards so they cooked another one. Held up the meal but they made it right by taking if off the bill. Friendly and professional staff - would go back again.

The Brussel sprout appetizer and bread were awesome. The jambalaya and seafood pasta were fabulous. The stuffed flounder has changed, still good, but I preferred the previous recipe. The Shanghai Style Spinach was flavorless, a disappointment. Service was awesome and the atmosphere was very good. Overall a very enjoyable meal.
