This once great establishment is a mere ghost of itself and what a disappointment this was. Like a scene out of H Gordon Ramsays show Kitchen Nigytmates it seems like no one was in charge and things were unorganized at best.

We were really bummed to make the trip out to Crescent today only to find the restaurant closed due to restaffing. According to Facebook, they're hosting a job fair on 4/10, so maybe they'll reopen soon. I definitely recommend calling ahead though to make sure....More

The service was great, the view was great and the two fresh fish dinners that my wife and I had were delicious. This is our second time back in the past month and both trips were excellent.
