The Zagat Review
“Outstanding” dishes from a “diverse and tasty menu” showcasing influences from the Gulf Coast, Cajun country, southern Italy and even Mexico are a big reason why this eponymous Montrose seafooder has been around for more than three decades; a pleasant setting plus “dependable, friendly” service help to make it “one of the nicest restaurants in the city” ; P.S. “don’t miss” the weekday happy hours featuring terrific cheap bites.

Although the waiter we had was nice, the food was a whole other story. First off, it was our wedding anniversary and although we made that known to the restaurant, no one acknowledged it. We ordered the calamari off the happy hour menu and for the price, the portions were extremely small. Like ridiculously small. So we sent that back. I can say that the chicken gumbo off the happy hour menu was good My husband's food came out and his snapper was so bland. He did not enjoy it. No flavor. Nothing special. I had ordered the rodeo deal which was the lobster and the ribeye steak. I asked for it to be medium. When I cut into it, it was basically medium rare. The inside looked raw and uncooked. The lobster was tough. The only good thing about the steak is that I was able to take it home and cook it to my liking. We didn't even bother ordering dessert since we weren't having such a good experience. We won't return.

Absolutely delicious. We had some grilled oysters and gumbo to start, both of which were great. Our waiter talked up the Snapper Martha and it lived up to expectations when I ordered it! Great place for date night or special occasions.

Our food was delicious. I was a little annoyed that when I asked for a lunch menu I was told by the hostess that they were on dinner. When I asked isn't lunch till 4pm she said she would check with the kitchen and then came back with the lunch menus. Maybe she was new but you should know your times for lunch and dinner however she was pleasant and we were able to order lunch. Food and drinks were good. Happy hour is from 3-6:30 not 3-7 as per their website.
