When we entered the first set of doors there was an employee standing there holding the doors open for us. She had on a tie dye t-shirt with a peace sign on it. She walked with us the few steps to the hostess podium where he lead us to a table. At first glance it appeared there were only three booths total but around the corner where we were seated there was a row of booths. We were sat cramped by another table although only one of the booths were occupied. By a couple, sprawled out on the large circular booth. Throughout our time we would watch that same host continually give tables of three or more a table while giving couples or individual people the booths. I have never known a place with young children in their party to be seated at a table if a booth was available, and most places ask.
There is a lot of interesting décor, mainly crab and fishing themed. They have tye die t shirts with the restaurant logos and such around the front of the store.
The table has a large bin in the center for shells or what not. There is also a large roll of paper towels and a cup with silverware. What appeared to be one of those red disposable cups sits on the table. The host mumbled something about ordering a drink and getting to keep the cup. The cup was actually a thicker plastic and was heavy. It had the restaurant logo on it. There is a decent drink menu as well. A lot of them look really interesting but we were just interested in water today. Our waitress came and took drinks, using some of the paper towel, she wrote her name on a square. She explained the table and that it was a slower evening, so we could take our time in ordering.
Our waitress, Jade, was very upbeat and professional. She was very helpful and seemed to jump on any opportunity to explain the menu. Drinks were always refilled promptly and we were never without anything. We had the sampler appetizer and it did not disappoint. The balls of fire could easily become my new favorite snack. The crab dip is very good and seemed like a nice change from the spinach artichoke dip so many places have. The calamari was cooked well.
This Caribbean Feast platter sounds like it is too much food but it is amazing how light it is. The Mahi Mahi had a more sweet flavor with the mango than had been experienced before and it worked very well. The seasonal vegetable was broccoli. It seemed a little under steamed but was alright. The rice was cooked well. The coconut shrimp, an appetizer we enjoy frequently, seemed to shame our most recent ones we had eaten. They were plump and cooked very well, a golden brown color. The chipotle shrimp had a nice taste that was somewhat more mild than expected. Overall it seems to be a very good meal that does not disappoint. At a quarter shy of $20, it shouldn’t.
The blackened Mahi tacos where not as good as I envisioned. I somehow had the idea they would be crunchy instead of soft tacos. Three tacos and a large pile of chips. The sauce was very light which was a shame since it tasted very good. The limes it was served with were somewhat dry. I would get many bites that were flavorful and amazing, even with a mushy soft taco. A few times all you can taste is the cilantro, which was kind of odd. Then, there were too many bites, like the last one, were there was no sauce and it was just a really fishy taste on a flour tortilla. . I am really not too fond of fish. While there is a lot of seafood I like, fish is generally something I will avoid unless it sounds really good. This dish was just not for me. Though my husband did enjoy a taco. I was not too keen on the chips that accompanied it. While they are decent enough chips, the sampler came with plenty. Its too bad that was not something you can substitute.
My son really enjoyed his choice. Captains catch. A lot of different things, the popcorn shrimp and the mozzarella sticks did not last long. He really liked the fish as well. Somehow he did not like the fries too much. They are a thicker cut and had a nice seasoned taste though they also have a hint of fish as well. The kids menu actually has a lot of choices at decent prices.
For an appetizer, two meals and kids meal, it was around $50.
I think it was a good meal and some of the staff was very friendly. I don’t understand the seating thing. Most of the booths sat empty but the tables were filled first. The décor is neat. The tables are not in the best condition, screws kept coming out of the chair our son was sitting on, but the concept is pretty cool. I think I would return if I was in the area.
