BEWARE - NO LONGER DOGWATERS – We entered the restaurant to find 4 people at the bar & only one other table with 2 guests. Our orders: Taco Salad w/o Jalapeno Pepers , Grouper Sandwich grilled, she crab soup, & Conch Bites. The soup lacked the crab but was still ok. The conch bites, and grouper sandwich came out at the same time & the waiter forgot about the salad & silverware. (Had he written the order down he might have remembered) After asking it took another 10 minutes for it to come out. (had to ask again for silverware)The Conch bites looked like clam strips, were not tender , and were cold. (Most likely sat under the lights waiting for everything else instead of being brought out when ready) The "Fresh from the boat daily" Grouper Sandwich, well it was fresh one day but today was not it. This piece was definately a frozen piece of unseasoned grouper that was tossed on the grill and left to thaw. There was a single burn/grill mark on the top where the piece made contact with the grill. It didnt even appear to be flipped. I cant even give this sandwich a 1/4 star. The taco salad finally arrived choc-full-of you guessed jalapeno peppers and no sour cream or salsa as stated in the menu. After getting sour cream (still no salsa) we can only give it a 2. 5. After some time the waiter came back looked at our full plates and asked how we were enjoying them. I told him not at all and I was actually writing this review already on my blackberry.The bartender came over to the table to ask us what was wrong, I explained the above and she offered to comp the whole check. She was very sorry and stated this was the waiters second day. (Hmmm he said different but okay maybe they just met) I will be impressed if the menu / staff / or complete restaurant doesnt change in 3 months or less. There is no way this place can survive like this. I would reccomend McDonalds fish sandwich over the one here and maybe taco bell for the salad, at minimum you will get what you expect for the price you are paying.
below average – Tried serveral times but wont be back. If you were my friend I would not recommend going here. prices are average, Monday night is Hamburger night and thursday is pint night. If just want a drink go but I dont recommend the food.
