    Great food, great service. Sit downstairs-good energy. Request Jessica as your server. Get the Angry Tails appetizer & the taco special. Get a glass of Provocateur wine. Even the patrons are friendly.

    Basically... the only thing good here is the jalepeno cornbread. Food sucked, service sucked, overcharged... Abysmal. Avoid.

    A nice uptown dinner spot with a downtown-ish vibe. Nice place for a girls' night. The fish tacos are good!

    Either dine downstairs in the casual bar area or upstairs in the more refined dining room/outdoor patio. Any of the lobster dishes are phenomenal but we have a soft spot for the lobster bisque.
