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!

Birthday dinner for our 23 year old son. My wife used to go here quite often with her family but admitted it had been awhile. Well the first issue I had upon arrival was the tired, worn and frankly not all that clean appearance. My wife said it was just as she remembered it when she lived around the corner... More

I really expected more, especially for the price. First problem there is no sign at the door advising that the staff will seat you so my partner and I waited for a good 10 minutes before anyone acknowledged us. The decor is beyond outdated. Our waitress was negligent and we paid $62 for a steak, lobster tail and baked potato... More

I first went to this restaurant over 20 years ago when I was in highschool. My dad found out about it and it was a gem! We used to love seeing the lobster tank full to the brim. Although I left Toronto in 1990, any time I was in town, we would make an effort to go there. I moved... More

I wrote a review of this restaurant years ago and said it was THE BEST! Well I am sad to say that due to the retirement of the original owner this is no longer the case. There is a long story about the sale of this restaurant to 2 people who then had a falling out and there are now... More

Prices have skyrocketed here with a 1.5 lb Lobster now $45! WOW! Decor as everyone else states is poor and 1980's, when we first started coming here, nothing has changed except the floor which is currently 8 yrs old! We arrived early at 5:15 and were the only people here. Owner seated us with menus and left. 5 minutes later... More

Honestly I have never felt ripped off at any restaurant as much as I did when I left this place. The restaurant as I understand it was a great place in the 80's and 90's. Forward to 2014 not so much. The décor has not changed in decades which is fine if the food was good. It wasn't. The steamed... More

New management seems to have lost the special atmosphere with poor renovations. Bad service and the food was not very good. Never going back there. Expensive.

i haven't been for years but went with a couple friends that bought a groupon. Place was jammed, im sure 90% had a coupon. Service was slow and rushed, lobster was dry. Much better options for lobster just north of the city.
