Romantic dining - Intimate dining on Valentine’s day. Servers were attentive and not intrusive. Atmosphere was romantic and the Gulf view was breathtaking at sunset. Shrimp & Grits were delicious with spices to make them stand out as a signature dish. Fresh gulf fish with sauce Pontchartrain was a major hit. Wine suggestions were perfect for our meal. Highly recommend.

Wonderful food and great ambiance - Our food was great. I had the red snapper, cooked to perfection with spinach madeleine (simply delicious) and my husband had the rack of lamb with spinach and black eye peas. He loved it. The food and ambiance was wonderful. It was a perfect anniversary dinner.

Wow - This was quite a taste treat. Crabmeat au gratin appetizer was wonderful. Surprisingly spicy, but not overly so. Really good. For dinner one of us had shrimp and grits, and the other had stuffed steak. The shrimp and grits was out of this world. It's a favorite of ours, so we have had it at many places, including a few in Charleston. This was as good as any. As good as it was, it couldn't compete with the steak. I have no reservations saying it was the best steak I've ever had. It's a NY strip butterfly cut and stuffed with bleu cheese and oysters. I don't even like oysters, but this was superb. My wife and I traded plates frequently so we could both enjoy the entrees. Superb, friendly service as well. Go to this place if you can.
