Group of 8. No issues. Server, Dana D. Awesome. Dueling lobster tails, delish! Glad we went. Restaurant is always dark inside, that's the way it is. Food quality has improved. Outstanding biscuits tonight. Overall a very good dining experience.

Parrot Isle shrimp is one of my favorites. It was delicious as I have come to expect! I tried the new lobster roll appetizer. It was tasty but I am not a lobster roll lover.
