We've enjoyed this place through two names and different owners. The quality and service standards set by the late Bill Fincher remain as a tribute to his restaurant accomplishments.

3rd time with our boating group for a dinner out. Didn't make a reservation but we were given the perfect seating for us and were well taken care of. The owner checked on every guest through out the evening. Every one in our group had a different dish and everything was great. The Chef is from the coast and really... More

Nice bar for meeting friends and enjoying a nice atmosphere with excellent crab cakes as appetizer! Good menu and enjoyable, relaxing dinner venue. Service is just ok, it could certainly improve, but still a nice place to go and relax!

We used to come to this restaurant when it was Catch 22. However, the Bistro is excellent!! We have been before and loved it but it was even better this time. The food was wonderful!! Our server, Sarah, was outstanding and the GM, Steve, stopped by our table and was very nice. The entertainment (South Carolina Acoustic) was great -... More

This restaurant is lovely. We were greeted with a smile from the hostess and seated. Beth was our server. She was awesome!!! She was cheerful from the moment she walked up to the table and introduced herself. We ordered drinks and appetizers to start. My husband ordered the Ahi tuna and for me, the fried green tomatoes and shrimp with... More

We were looking for a place to celebrate my daughter's engagement and decided to give this restaurant a try. We were very impressed with the menu and the service. We all tried something different and loved them all. We will return.

Decided to give this place a try. It was okay. The food was pretty tasty, service was decent, but the menu is not current which was super frustrating when trying to order. Two items my dad tried to order are no longer available, so why are the on the menu? My daughter wanted chocolate milk, but they don't have milk.... More

My wife & I decided to go by for the first time in about 3 years. The server, Josh, was quite good. I had a cup of She crab soup which was good, but with too much of a mushroom undertone. My wife had a caprese salad which was really good. I had the shrimp scampi which was a little... More
