Great seafood restaurant!

We had lunch/dinner here in the mid-afternoon. It was not crowded. We had 2 orders of the fresh clams (6 per order). I had the 10 oz lobster tail (this was on the dinner menu) and it was the best I've had yet. Cooked to perfection. Also ordered the fried scallops with side of pasta - also cooked... read more

This place is pretty meh. I had the blue crab claws which while very fresh, they were swimming in a watery buttery something or other. The crab cakes were very thick and slightly greasy/oily, with not much flavor. Their garlic rolls were however, delicious and my rib eye was better than your average restaurant. My husbands strip though, was very... More

We ate dinner there last night (Friday night). The parking lot was packed, but we were seated pretty quickly. The adults in our group started off with the Mai Tai pitcher, which was excellent. There was more than enough for the five of us. The rolls were superb. I had the Australian lamb with Alaskan king crab. It was the... More

Went for Saturday night diner. Place was busy, however seated in 10 minutes. Very friendly and excellent service. They have fresh fish flown in daily from several locations with good selections. The garlic rolls are delicious. To start my wife had the crab bisque and I had the lobster bisque, both were great. We both had one of the fresh... More

We went here on Wed evening. There were two of us. We started with a martini each. Then they informed us it was half price bottle of wine night so we added a bottle of wine for $17 instead of the usual $34. Then we had 6 blue point oysters which were plump and fresh. Then a cup of crab... More

Was very busy over the holidays, but they were able to get us in and we had a great meal. Coming from HI I have high expectations for seafood and we were not disappointed. I've had better seafood, but not by much

We have dined here many times in the past decade, but not recently. While our late lunch hour server was a bit overwhelmed by a late rush, the food more than met our expectations. The calamari is fantastic! The appetizer is a large portion, enough to be a meal. The calamari is lightly coated in flour, and flash fried to... More

Had a birthday dinner there last Friday. Party of 6. Drinks took forever. Wait staff ranged from OK to horrible and they tag team the tables so you're not sure who the main waiter really is. Food for the price is horrible. I had pasta with shrimp with garlic and oil. The shrimp were the small frozen kind. There were... More
