We chose this place because of the menu variety. We had high hopes. Decor was dark and dirty looking. We had to ask another staff member to find our waitress once and had to personally go get her on another occasion. It seems the conversation...More

Started with she crab soup and grouper special which was perfect. Mahi mahi was also good and a large portion. Drinks were reasonably priced and " full sized". Service was pleasant and not intrusive. All at a reasonable price

Outstanding steaks, fresh seafood and chicken. Referred to as Salt Creek by the locals, this kitchen has it down. Top notch bar, best mojitos in the Inlet. Early Bird specials & pizzas. Homemade dishes, family meatloaf recipe will get your tastebuds Rockin.

We sat outside with our friends under a huge oak tree until the restaurant closed. The seafood platter was excellent and coconut shrimp. My husband had salmon on spinach salad and it was excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food is always great! The service could be improved. The staff seems to be in a bad mood. I think they are a great restaurant some of the time and sometimes I'm sorry I went there.More

Appreciate the sarcastic reply to my review on Trip Advisor. I can promise you that while traveling for work, I definitely won't recommend your place. Good luck with that smart business practice. BTW, the night I was told to wait, you weren't busy and that was the whole point of the review. WOW!
