Excellent seafood

They have a way of preparing seafood that is always right on. I had the fried oyster appetizer yesterday. Fantastic with just the right amount of sauce and breading served over a corn salad. Yum! The fish tacos are also great.

When on the coast, you must eat seafood! This was a wonderful place to go, the wait was just a few minutes but well worth it. I had the paella and the mrs had the seared scallops. Both were excellent!

We have been spending a week in Bethany for more than thirty years and this is the best food in the area. Everything is fresh and local; prices (for a beach resort) are not exorbitant. It's in a little shopping mall just outside of town and doesn't look like much from the outside, but during the high season you may... More

We there with my daughter 6/6/15. The restaurant is small but we were able to get in. The food is good and the prices are average for the area. All their fish is fresh and cooked to order.

Innovative , usually farm to table cuisine. Very consistent, very popular restaurant. Scallops are excellent as are steak and salad offerings. Typically excellent fresh fish offerings. Very good specials on Mondays with fish tacos, burgers, etc.

Don't let the strip mall appearance keep you away. Once inside and seated you will be pleasantly surprised by the quality of the menu. Bisque is the best in town. Service is excellent and the food is delivered at the right times. I do not like having my dinner delivered on top of my appetizer.. Never happens here. Great place... More

The restaurant always has the best and freshest foods available. The chef always has unique specials. the wait staff are great especially Dennis. They did not have all the ingredients form the drink we wanted and Dennis went next door tom the liquor store to get them. As always we had and exceptional dinner and will be back.
