    Tried to go here for Mother’s Day and they had literally no food. They ran an abbreviated menu and left you with two options and nothing on their menu online was available. Ruined our plans and many others in line waiting to get in. Will never return and I imagine this place will close soon.

    There was a concert across the street, so they were serving a VERY limited menu. Had we known that, we would have chosen a different spot. The food was ok but not the awesome seafood experience I was hoping for. The waitstaff was very nice and worked really hard to cheer up my kids after they spilt ice water in their laps.

    It's hard to knock restaurants for understaffing but it really did effect our experience. Waiter was so busy that he often asked us the same things twice or forgot all together. Even tried to collect payment twice. Also we were seated in an area that seemed closed in disconnected from the rest of the restaurant and no ambience.

    I have never written a restaurant review before! This needed to be said. Mishandled Concert night, even though they are situated right across from Gainbridge Fieldhouse where many high profile concerts and sporting events are held on a regular basis. I am very disappointed that after spending time researching places to eat the night of the Elton John Concert and making a reservation 3 weeks ahead, they chose to give us the worst table in the house! It went down hill from there. I won’t mention everything but I will tell you they changed their menu on the night of the concert. They kept all of the liquor and drinks and wine but changed the menu items that were offered. Since what was on the menu we found on line was not the same that night and what we wanted was no longer offered … not good! We sat for an hour waiting to order dessert, trying to get the attention of our waiter. When he finally came he threw our bill at us, literally from over a high wall between seating areas. You may think I am exaggerating but I promise I am not ! We determined that the reason for all of this was because my husband sent his badly cooked steak back to the kitchen. When the newly cooked steak arrived, it was perfect. In the meantime we were approached twice to be educated about steaks, cooking them etc. Do they think everyone that they serve is stupid! The second steak he was served and the fact it was as it should be, says it all.

    We had appetizers and drinks. The oysters were super fresh and delicious as were the Lobster Nachos which I highly recommend. Then we each had a salad, the grilled caesar, and the Wedge salad. They were good but they both had far too much dressing, ask for it on the side. And both dressings were surprisingly spicy. otherwise great. Fun place to eat with good food and attentive staff!

    First visit and it was amazing- fresh seafood, great layout (indoors since weather is still cold) but outdoor dining option looks inviting. I had hot lobster roll and it was delicious and rich- lobster not overcooked and very tender. I will be back- really want to try the lobster mac and cheese.

    Ate at the bar. The staff not working were huddled next to me chatting about work, and engaging those who were working. Had to interrupt them to get an order in, another beverage and the bill. Not the best.

    I brought my boyfriend here to celebrate his birthday and the service as well as food was great! We had the lobster nacho as an appetiser and it was really big for 2. We devoured it all! For entrées, we ordered the black and bleu burger with truffle and parmesan fries as well as the fish and chips. We shared everything and enjoyed every bit of it. Our waiter was very attentive! Every time he notices our empty glasses, he'll politely come over and ask if we'd like more drinks. On top of that, they even gave us a dessert on the house to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday! It was a very very pleasant experience here with both the food and service. 100% will come again.

    The food was a big disappointment except the lobster nachos. Wanted to give this place a good recommendation but it was too big of a disappointment and I’m pretty laid back. Perhaps my taste buds were overwhelmed by the very good lobster nacho flavor. The rest of the meal was really bland in my opinion.

    Received our soup that came with dinner before receiving our 2 appetizers we ordered. Had to ask about those. Was told it was only 18 minutes for the food to come out of the kitchen but we went ahead and placed our order at 6:30 anyway. At 7:30 after checking several times we had still not received our dinner and there were seven of us. We had to leave the restaurant without any food to make it to the concert on time across the street. I’ve been there many times before and have never experienced this. They obviously overscheduled themselves without enough help. They were also out of three dishes that were on the menu for specials. We did asked to speak with a manager and he did comp or drink bill but we were still very disappointed and very hungry when we left there.

    If you like seafood this is a decent choice in downtown. Very conveniently located to Gainbridge and Lucas Oil Stadium but the food is the star. Had the grilled oysters which were very good but like all oysters not much to them. The lobster roll was buttery and delicious and not greasy.
