I just loved the outdoor terrace location, the ambiance, the service and the entertainment. It was a good start. The appetizer, a shrimp ceviche, was OK however the amount of green peppers just about killed the flavor of the shrimp. For the main I had were large pan fried scallops, as promised, however they had not been cleaned properly and... More

I knew that this was a seafood restaurant but I did not expect it to smell like a stagnant aquarium. The staff wore tee-shirts and tattoos. Many were stained. $65 bucks for what amounted to fish sticks. I won't be going back.

Busy, but far from a seafood house, very little seafood on menu. Is a oyster bar, with good beer selections, and a great location, but really little else to praise the place on.

Not sure if the Casino closings had an effect, but not a good this visit. We enjoyed a cooler August evening outdoors, the waitress was efficient, but not overly friendly. My husband very much likes the Goombay Smash, but outdoors they serve them in smaller plastic cups. His appetizer of oysters & clams he enjoyed, but his fried oysters were... More

Restaurant gets very crowded and loud, but worth it! The food is great, the wait staff is friendly. Will definitely be going here again!

We went there on a family weekend trip to AC. Saturday night we sat outside, which was really nice with a band playing jazz club type music. Server arrives to take drink order and continually repeats the order back to each person incorrect. It becomes apparent he hardly speaks english. Drinks come back 10 mins later, they were very busy... More

My family and I loved it. The service was fast and the food was very fresh. I liked how you have the option of outside seating with live music playing. Overall great seafood and nice atmosphere.

This place had good reviews from fellow TA contributors. Good friends who live in the area raved about it as well. No One was wrong; quite an enjoyable dinner. Variety of items ordered; fried oysters, tuna tartae, clams for appetizers. Dinners included Seared Scallops, Lobster Roll, Crabmeat Cocktail, Clam Chowder. All were done quite well, no issues. Service was excellent.... More

We went there for the menu looked very interesting. My wife and I had the Seafood Combo. Talapia, Crab Cake, Shrimp, Oysters, Cole Slaw and French Fries for $26. Sounds like a lot of food, but , you get 2 Oysters, 2 shrimp, small filet of fish, not stuffed and a ice cream scooper size of crab meat with bread... More

This place is for drunks and pimps. Waiters and waitresses were tired looking and walked around like zombies. No smiles on anyone face. They all looked overworked and underpaid. That should have been a sign to move on, but I am a sucker for seafood. The calamari had to be sent back, @ 10 pieces with a pound of oily... More
