Because it's a place grandpa likes, we go at least 8 or 10 times a year. We have been disappointed so many times, it's ridiculous.
Do they know how to make a Tom Collins (a classic cocktail)? No. No, they really don't, and I'm sure there's a bartender guide in the bar somewhere.
The ""Ultimate Crab Cake - 1/4 lb of lump crab meat and not much else"" ($18.99) was 80% breading. When we brought this to the attention of the manager, he said, ""Well, what do you want me to do?' This was the m-a-n-a-g-e-r, not some slack-jawed 20-something who just got their first job waiting tables.
Peppered Ponzu Ahi Tuna is often so tough you can't chew through the fascia. That's not sashimi-grade, folks.
Their old signature dishes, Crawfish Ettouffee, Jambalaya, etc. taste like they came out of a box in the freezer.
Sometimes the food comes out great. The churrasco steak is very reliable. I love seafood, but I never order it here.
