    The food and atmosphere are good but if you are put off by having to do the whole online ordering and opening a tab then do go. The wait staff was very friendly but you are basically have to navigate their site, place your order, give them your credit card and ignore the other people in your party while you are doing all of this. I understand the reason some restaurants are going to this method but it made for an awkward meet up with a friend. When she asked for a paper menu because reading the phone screen was difficult for her she was told they could bring her an iPad instead. Not helpful. I don't blame the staff but I don't recommend the experience.

    Waitress was great but we found ordering for six on our phone very confusing especially as several items including bloody Mary mix were out at the beginning of lunch. It was very expensive for small portions and very average food. Sorry, we wont come back until you have a real menu and a waitress who takes the order for a table. We were very disappointed and embarrassed to have taken our guests to such a disorganized place. Such a shame as it is a great location.

    This place is definitely a vibe! Love the atmosphere. Love the outside seating option that’s literally on the water. Neat that you can self service order from your phone without a server. The only downfall to that is if you have multiple questions about the menu. Our server was Grace, she was very sweet and nice. The food was amazing other than the tortilla chips that was served with the crab dip. They were very stale, but they did nothing about it because they were apparently pre- cooked and not cooked to order. I will still be returning and will definitely recommend them. Oh and parking is HELL! Get there early just to ride around for 10mins. They need to invest in a parking deck down there.

    Food was okay, but location and view were amazing. It is all ordering and paying on QR code which is great, but staff was not great …salads serviced without dressing, lost drinks, etc. Menu selection is not very heathy and while online menu says there is a side salad there is not. Menu was a good value….affordable seafood.

    You have to use an app to order and there is not much personal service. Our appetizers came out with our meal because the app did not know to send it out early.

    Not bad but liked the Conche ambiance a lot more. The ordering over the phone is cool but I think they need to make sure the staff understands better the numbering system of the tables better. We got things we did not order.

    Easily made reservations for a Wednesday lunch and was super satisfied with everything. Everyone was friendly and helpful and the decor was beautiful in the building. I felt like I had been swept away to an island. Ordering food was a cinch and server was very helpful. Food was brought out quickly and was fresh. House margarita was perfect pair with it. Delighted with everything except they ran out of the dessert we wanted. Would dine again.

    We walked in without a reservation, was told they were only taking reservations for the night. I went outside, got on the website and saw multiple reservations available. So I made a reservation and went right back in. Wasn’t a great customer service experience.

    Wanted this place to be good and was gravely disappointed. Food was not good. Service was not good. Waited and waited for drinks which were supposed to be pineapple juice but were pure lemon juice instead! The location is great but they’ve got to get their act together.

    Great food and extra great service! Thomas was our waiter and he even went next door to a neighboring restaurant and got a straw to fit my husband’s drink! That’s was above and beyond! My second time there in a week and I will certainly be back! Can’t beat the food or the scenery!

    The hostess and the manager left something to be desired. They corrected themselves before we left. The manager even invited my son outside. Very unprofessional. Food was alright. Just beautiful to be by the water.

    This was my graduation dinner. It was the absolute worst - starting with the outdoor seating with no umbrellas, then the nastiest "General Manager" I have ever encountered. He was RUDE and very unprofessional to me, my mother and my sister when we tried to work out different seating arrangements for our 14 guests. It wasn't until my UNCLE when to talk to him, did he act reasonable at all. He rescheduled our reservation for 7:30 when it was somewhat cooler, then our food and drinks where not delivered to the table until 8:47pm and not ALL of the food even then! My sister's food finally came out at about 9:30 and it was cold. She sent it back to be recooked, then they closed the kitchen before it could be remade. Our server was nice but they put her in a terrible situation with the food. We had just dined here on May 28 for my dad's bday and had a wonderful time, food and service was excellent. The female manager was so polite and the staff (especially Mark) were very attentive. This time the staff (although nice) were clearly on edge while this "GM" was there and was probably what effected the food service as well. You really need to let HIM the GM go. He is a liability. This was the best day ever, until I came here that is...

    Tried this spot as we were going to be in the area . The first thing you'll notice is the heat , it seemed like the AC was off or can't keep up .Peeked at the thermostat it read 81 ,way too hot to be comfortable while eating. We made reservations well in advance ,got there wanted a booth (there were several empty) we were told we couldn't have one they were reserved. They sat empty at least 30 minutes or more after we were seated , we felt booths should be first come first served. My biggest issue is the way you have to order ,from your phone. I CAN'T STAND THIS !!! We stopped going to all the Boat House locations (which I think has the same owners) because of this. Then there is the flies constantly buzzing around us as we swatted continuously while we were trying to eat .The place was also full of smoke from the kitchen ,seems to be no ventilation to pull smoke out of area. Overall food was descent just wish atmosphere was a little better .Our server was VERY nice and kept apologizing about issues and said " I want your experience here to be a good one" which meant a lot to us so in addition to the 20% gratuity already charged EVERY TIME you order we gave him about a total 30% tip .This place has great potential ,just not totally there yet .

    The ordering concept was different (order and pay on your phone). A few things on the menu were not available. The food came out quickly. There was an abundance of staff present, and they were all helpful. I enjoyed the Aloha Shrimp Boat.
