We eat there every few weeks for lunch, last few meals were below par, Shrimp had odd taste (not fresh), prime rib overly seasoned (salty) and over cooked (overly fatty). Food starting to be hit and miss but restaurant needs a major cleaning. Service slow due to skeleton crew. Carpet is needed to be replaced 5 years ago, was covering... More

Noticed this restaurant as I was driving toward my hotel. What a great dinner! I had flounder stuffed with crabmeat and shrimp - each flavor was distinct, yet complimentary. The Ceaser salad was excellent, as were the grilled vegetables. I enjoyed the bread - not sure of the predominant grain. dark and hearty. The service was beyond excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed...

Like the other review says tables are sticky reminds me off Florida with the high humidity. Food was ok had the blacken red fish came out very dry. The bread pudding is very good. Grilled vegetables tasted like sautéed vegetable. They were out of coffee for week the staff said. ???

We often dine at the Seafood tavern, but I was shocked at what happened on or last attempt to dine there. We arrived inside at 8:55. Waited for someone to seat us for 7 minutes. After no one greated us I went into the dinning area and was told by the manager that they closed at 9 pm (now 9:02)... More

The food was okay and I probably would not have written this review except for the treatment I received from the staff and the manager. The waitress did not properly wait on our table. When the bill came, we were left waiting for the waitress. Four times I had to get up from the table to search for the waitress.... More

When my husband asked me where I wanted to go for our seventh anniversary dinner the Seafood Tavern was our top choice. The first time we ate here we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had an attentive waiter and the food was amazing. As a result we were greatly anticipating a similar experience and were greatly disappointed by what happened... More

This restaurant had decent reviews, it was close to our hotel, and we were both craving seafood. However, I forget that seafood in the south is almost always fried and battered beyond recognition, so don't expect great seafood. I took off the heaving coating of the batter and ate the shrimp and cod beneath, but still was quite greasy and... More
