    We've been coming to CQ for many years now. We've utilized the dining area indoors, outdoors, bars, and service at the docks. This was our first time having lunch with Santa and it was fantastic. Santa & his helper were lovely, kind and patient. He made his way around the dining area speaking to each child and made each feel very listened to and important. This will become a tradition of ours now. Highly recommend Lunch with Santa!!

    Decent food but the brisket was cut with the grain unfortunately, which ruined it. Overly-attentive staff- I don’t like it when the experience of dining is interrupted every 8 minutes so you can tell the wait staff how great everything is. The atmosphere is nice.

    Great spot to go eat! Family came and visited and they had never been; it's especially nice to take people who've never been since it's on the water. I'll definitely be going back once the weather warms up!

    We have gone many times to CQ but this visit was disappointing. Food was cold and not very good. It was not a busy night so no excuses. Server was attentive, but not much he could do. We still like CQ and will try again soon.

    Ribeye for $40 was mediocre nothing special. They added a ton of garlic butter on the steak to give it flavor. The shrimp and grits were not sauté’d and actually made me sick that night. The table we were sitting at blew cold air right at us and on the table which made our food cold. The manager did turn it down but it turned right back on . Was not a good first experience.

    It was my husbands birthday. He got the seafood platter and the fish was over cooked and the other seafood was so so he said. He was very disappointed. Was going to say something but with the other people at the table, didn’t want to disrupt the evening.

    Server said bartender couldn't make vodka martini so she suggested I order something else. Took 20 minutes for drinks & longer for food, however all of our food was delicious. Ambiance is wonderful. Think next time we'll just do drinks and sit in a couple of the many Adirondack chairs on the hill.
