Don't go there are better places around

Went there on Friday 12/17/10. It started off with they had no milk for theirs drinks. I ordered Ribs they had none, went for a cheddar bacon burger, no bacon. Got the new england clam chowder it was watery. so my friend and I both ordered burgers, how can you go wrong right. Well they were very salty and so were the fries. I guess the one thing they did have was salt. Won't be going back there again.

Absolute Worts! Overpriced

I do not recommend this restaurant!!! A friend and I decided to have lunch and got more than we bargained for. I ordered a cheesburger platter. While the burger was ok, I received a handful of fries (literally). My friend ordered the crabcake sandwich (that she didn't like) and asked for a burger instead. I returned My fountain soda (coke) and decided to order a root beer. About a quarter way in the the root b... view more

Pretty good southern food, AVOID on Workdays due to VERY slow service

I came here on a Friday afternoon (12:45) and was greeted with a throng of people waiting at the bar. We were able to ask to sit at the front on the small bar tables. Big mistake. There appeared to be only 1 waitress serving the entire restaurant. It was at least 10 minutes before she was able to assist us, and luckily, we were ready to order. It took another 20 minutes for the food to arrive. I realize that it was b... view more

An all around miserable experience

Lackluster food, a long wait, non exsistent service and ridiculously high priced. A total disaster.

Dat's My Bait

When you look in the entrance way, you probably can only see people blockcading the bar area to the Live Bait. However, beyond the drinking crowd are tables to sit, tv, and music. The food is great, so two thumbs up to the chefs there. Also the service is pleasant, particularly Serena, I had to shout you out because your smile and presence truly makes the visit enjoyable.

Worst Southern Food I have ever had

I ate there the other night, and it was awful. I ordered the jerk chicken, and it ended up being a piece of breast smothered in ground pepper. Thats it. The only flavor was burnt. My friend got the blackended catfish and red beans and rice, which again was smothered in pepper and way too many jalepenos. He barely too two bites out of it. They even managed to screw up the calimari, which was rubbery and, yep you guess... view more

Not a Fish Store

Working next to this place for a year, I kept passing by, assuming it was either a fish store or a quirky bar. Actually, it has a solid menu replete with po' boys, jamabalaya, gumbo, some quality fries, and some Confederate-themed entrees. Food is a bit overpriced, but the service, atmosphere, and exceeded expectations redeem this joint.

kitsch, with a price

I didn't try the food on a recent weeknight meeting a friend for beers, but the overall atmosphere was pretty fun. Moreover, the relaxed bartenders were friendly and speedy. Unfortunately they pour pints of Yuengling that cost $6, and the atmosphere really does not warrant such prices...
