Lovely ambience and fast service. Dirty martini was perfect! Food was OK. I ordered a simple caprese salad with some shrimp which was light and refreshing. The calamari app needed a pinch of salt, and the burger my daughter ordered, unfortunately was over cooked for her liking and dry. Nonetheless, this is a great date night location, and I bet would be lovely for cocktail hour.

Food was good but not terrific. Appetizer, crab ceviche was too acidic, entree, swodfish and salsa, was good but slightly overcoocked and the side of couscous was damp, desert, keylime pie, was way too sweet.
Overall food was good but overpriced, I would not come back nor did I eat antyhing that would justfy driving 50 miles to eat there.
Drinks were top notch though.

Service was adequate but our server was not very friendly. Salmon was dry and not very flavorful. Other food was good.

Disappointed to have been sat in the bar area instead of the main dining room after making a reservation like two weeks in advance, especially given that it's such a huge building. Our appetizer was missing ingredients, my wife's dinner was cold and my dinner had a side salad on the plate with it that I didn't order. The food was good but it was all tossed on the plate a bit haphazardly, which is really only a problem because it's expensive. There were lots of kids, some screaming babies, the bar room looks into an unused kitchen which just kind of makes it feel like a storage area. We made a reservation because they were still listed on the Magical Dining site but when we got there they told us they weren't doing it anymore, so the main reason I wanted to go was to see what it looked like inside. Guess I'll never know :\

Our waitress was fantastic though, extremely friendly and attentive, and our drinks were great too.

Personally, the food is way overpriced for what you are getting. I made a reservation way in advance for my girlfriends birthday and they sat us in a seat with a terrible view against the wall with plenty of open tables facing the water.

Hi, when we checked in the host asked us if we were dining for a special occasion, which we also wrote that it was my spouse’s birthday in the special instructions on the reservation. Our server never mentioned happy birthday. We are adults so it didn’t bother us too much, but I know that my spouses face fell when a couple other tables in the room had birthdays, and their servers said happy birthday. This didn’t break our evening, but it certainly didn’t make it. Food was great, atmosphere was perfect.

The food was mediocre, and the menu had nothing worth getting besides the Maine lobster. We sent the catfish back cause it was not cooked all the way through not sure of the reason for the magical dinning menu because the prices were basically a few bucks different. Honestly if I ever go back it will be for the service and the ambiance.

worst service ever. So slow. They don’t give you bread or anything before your apps and entrees. Entrees we’re really good but not worth the horrible experience involved in getting it.

We went to Paddlefish to try out their magical dining menu. The food we ordered (ahi tuna, catfish, key lime pie, fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, and chocolate cake) were very good and the portions were very generous.

Food was good but nothing spectacular . Kids portions are very well served and they give you stuff to entertain the little ones. But the service was VERY deficient and it was not ours waitress fault. She was very kind but totally overwhelmed and no one else helping. Not once our table got cleaned, not even before dessert. Also they have a huge out door area and do not have ot a bailable for reservations so we end up being sited in a back area with no view.

We were there to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered the stuffed cod at the recommendation of our server and a Caesar salad. My husband ordered crispy shrimp. His was the standard shrimp good but not great. Mine was luke warm when it arrived. My salad came out about 5 minutes after ordering. About two bites in our meals arrived. There is no way that food was cooked when we ordered. It was sitting in the back for who knows how long prior to being sent out. The server commented "I didn't even put that in until after I brought the salad" which further confirms it was sitting prior to us ordering. Our reservation was at 7 and we walked out at 7:22. Not a great experience for a special occasion. The server was good so she got a 20% tip from us but we won't be back.
