Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My family was at an outdoor festival in Greer when we visited Great Bay for supper. I personally had not been to Great Bay in over 15 years. I still remembered the shrimp and grits. Service from the waitstaff was minimal and lackluster. However, the...fried green tomatoes, along with the shrimp and grits, were amazing. Everyone enjoyed their meals.More

First time and we will be back. Just dinner with my wife. I had the special, lobster and filet. My wife had the jumbo scallops. Dinner was amazing and the young lady that served us was excellent. Just the atmosphere of seeing family and friends...just laughing and having an good time just added to our evening.More

Wednesday December 21, 2022, my wife and I are in town bc my mother-in-law is in hospital to have heart bypass. At 6:30 we walk from our hotel to this place to get a bite to eat before going back to the hospital. The place...is only 50% full but we are told it will not be long but to wait outside. It was 40 degrees, but we sat outside and waited......and waited.......and waited. 45 minutes later we left and went back to the hotel. I called from the hotel and asked what the problem was. Was told there is a 45-minute wait. I said we waited 45 minutes, and you never called us in. I got the feeling we were not welcome to dine there. So, we will not EVER. Hope no one else does either.More

Miscommunication regarding reservations. We called to see if we needed one and were told no. So we arrived 15 min later and were asked if we had a reservation? We said no, we had just called and were told we did not need one..... now...on a 45 min wait? So we wait....at the bar. Bartender was very rude (older blonde)... took a few minutes to get our order, had to ask twice for a glass of water, hardly made eye contact, and abruptly and rudely told us our 15 year old could not sit at the bar. So we got up from there. At this point, we should have just left. Our server was friendly the food was good but not good enough to overcome our less than friendly welcome. Three of us spent $240. We won't be back.More

I enjoyed my French dip and onion rings, my wife didn't like her sushi, said it tasted like grocery store sushi. The cocktails were good and it was walking distance to the hotel. Prices weren't bad.

There are other great places to eat close by, try one of them. Overpriced and extremely slow. No wait to be seated but then 15min for water 30 for an appetizer, meal lasted an hour and twenty. Service is poor, even when considering how busy...they were. Fried green tomatoes horrible, too much breading, overcooked, salty. Shrimp and grits, a joke. Shrimp overcooked on two plates. Oysters nice. Crab cake fairly nice as well. $140, never again.More

I went on a Wednesday night, waited 15 minutes seated at the bar to order a drink. Was served 5 minutes later, 20 minutes by the clock after sitting down less than 50% of the martini glass for a martini that the bartender told me...was a whole shot of gin. They were 50% full and could not keep up.More

We had reservations and were seated promptly. That was the best part of our visit. The tables and bar was not at all socially distanced, to the point that it was readily apparent that management was unconcerned about the health of customers. Obviously, the restaurant...was short staffed. We had to remind staff that our order had not been completed multiple times. Food was good but over-priced. I cannot recommend this restaurant.More

Great down town location, very relaxed atmosphere great music great service. Southern seafood menu with limited but well executed sushi menu. Great bar serving beers of all taste and varieties. Not a cheap place but not a wallet breaker. It requires more than 1 visit.

They have oysters, shrimp, & more. I cannot recall all of them. They should have a menu on their website.
