“Good Food, awful service”
Reviewed 27 December 2009

As we waited, for twenty minutes it turned out, for a server to show up at our table after being seated by a totally unenthusiastic greeter, one of our lunch companions wondered why "they spent so much money on the beautiful place and can't provide decent service?" So did I, particularly after our server delivered a wrong drink ten minutes later.

Things got a bit better. Our salads were good, though my soft shell crab was certainly on the small size; my wife's blue crab salad was quite good.

There are many places like this in the Punta Gorda area, which we visit once a year to see relatives. Several have had good reviews here. This restaurant is part of a laudable effort to fix up the down town waterfront after years of neglect and a major hurricane that was devastating. We're hoping our experience is part of a set of growing pains, but the service was so negligent we have to wonder if any manager is really minding the store.
