VERY NICE

I was meeting a friend near where I use to live 10 years ago. I had eaten at other AMOB locations and was satisfied so this made sense to try this one. We had a lovely waitress named Delilah. Very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. My friend and I caught up on life and when we finally... read more

Started with seafood gumbo which was exceptionally good. A little on the hot side but hey, it's gumbo (or gumbeaux). My wife had New England Clam Chowder, which was excellent (and we're from New England). Wife's cocoanut shrimp was excellent. My blackened Mahi Mahi was excellent. The waiter was exceptionally good.

Not great but not bad either...They did have nice oysters. My husband had a lobster special and I had fish and chips. Both were fine just not rave worthy. Our service was good. The restaurant is casual and near our hotel.

What a great time with an amazing selection of food. Calamari was the best I've had in my life! They even have escargot done to perfection. I haven't seen that on any menu for almost a decade. Be prepared to wait to get in as it is a very popular place. Worth the wait!

We visited while staying in town for lacrosse tournament. It looked very crowded with people outside and inside waiting but the wait was actually 10minutes. It is much bigger than it looks. The food was good, big portions and reasonable price for seafood. I would go again.

No frills here, the silverware comes in plastic sleeves and the napkins are a roll of paper towels. 3 of us ordered bloody Mary's which were small and not served with of the... More

The food was AWESOME. Crab cakes, Lobster, shrimp. The family shared a little of everything from each others plates and it all tasted great. Friendly staff just capped off the visit. I wished I had saved room for dessert.

great food, reasonable prices, good service. The only down side is a long wait during peak hours, but that a tribute to their food

Family and child friendly restaurant, very good seafood, large portions, quick service, crowded but good atmosphere. Try to get a table outside if you can. Not too expensive, paid 60 bucks for 4, very cheap for kids under 10
