OK food, Lazy Service – So excited about this place when it opened. Wierd that it's in the Walmart parking lot but they have it all fenced in so you wouldn't even know the Walmart was there. The parking lot is pretty small. The patio area is nice and there is often live music. It's super loud. Too loud for how small the space is in my opinion. I hate having to yell a conversation or my order. Speaking of ordering, the food is perfectly fine IF you actually get waited on. Seems that everybody that works there likes to hang out and it's almost as if they don't expect you to want to eat. We have eaten there a handful of times and the ball is always dropped. Either we aren't greeted and seated in a timely fashion (it's not crowded), or our server is MIA for way too long, or it all goes great and then we have to actually get up from our table to go find someone--anyone to bring us our check. The last and final time we visited--we were both craving the salad with fried grouper--we waited and waited to get waited on and finally got up and left. There was hardly anyone there and no one seemed to notice us leaving. It was bizzarre and frustrating. We vowed that was it and it's been a while by now since that last visit. If they had the service to match the ambience it would be a decent place to go if you are up that way. I recommend a vist only if you are not in a hurry and you don't tend to get annoyed with mediocre service.
