I have to give the place a thumbs up just for the location which is in the heart of downtown. The place was packed on Friday and the wait was about 20 minutes which isn't too annoying and we drank from the bar. I had a strawberry martini and it was too powerful. I could hardly taste anything but the alcohol.
We finally get seated and the waiter was extremely nice and knowledgeable and seemed to hit it off with our kids immediately. Our daughter had no interest in eating any seafood and the waiter made suggestions to make it easier.
Our appetizers came very quickly and we are glad they did. We had the calamari which was good and crab cakes which I thought were terrible. Then it kind of went downhill. For some reason, they could not get out or meals. It took almost 30 minutes.
I had the Hawaii seafood combo which was under cooked after 30 minutes. By then though, I was starving so I didn't complain. The waiter was very apologetic about the wait and we understand it wasn't her fault but they had a hard time in the kitchen for whatever reason.
I can't say if we will go back. We very rarely hit downtown and there are too many options to choose from. First impressions are important.
