We ordered vegetables on the side, but it was with ice inside.The restourant has a new owner, the things are not the same comparing to 2 years ago, it got worse. But, it is still a good... More

2 people ordered 1 1/4 broiled lobster, the pasta and had lobster bisque. We had a Buytopia voucher - $30 for $60 worth of food. All the food was delicious but they all had one thing in common. Very rich... overly rich. I think they overuse cream and/or butter to make it taste so good but then you can only... More

Although a tank of lobsters greeted us on entry, they were probably wondering why we were there. The environment looks tired and in need of a total renovation..A distinct unpleasant smell greets you as you enter and it stayed with us till we left..We were enthusiastically greeted and hence felt too guilty at that point to leave. I ordered the... More

Here you will find the most delicious lobsters in town. The restaurant has new management and they try to make each visitor happy. I was with my family here, and we are very satisfied. Our children had also very yammy dishes. Everything is very fresh and the service is very quick and friendly. In the evening a little crowded, so... More

I went here with my family because we remembered going as kids and loving it. What a disappointment.....lobster was rubbery and chewy.....tasted like it was frozen and then reheated. Yuk!
