Best seafood I have EVER had

The first night we tried to eat here, the first question we were asked was, "Do you have a reservation?" And of course I didn't realize one was needed, so we made a reservation for the following night. The wait was totally worth it! I ordered the combo platter which consisted of 2 scallops, 1 crab... read more

Most likely the best seafood place in the area. Walleye done right. Crab cakes are essentially all crab meat, and good size. Jambalaya is great, and King Crab is out of this world. Check out the seafood counter when you enter. A++

We have been to this place several times and we always leave satisfied and happy with the food and service. They have a variety of seafood Entree . I love their Buffalo shrimp appetizer. This is a must visit restaurant for those seafood lovers.

Have enjoyed the food at this restaurant on many occasions. We have never been disappointed, as the food was always delicious! Unfortunately, the restaurant is relatively small – therefore stacking patrons close together as the noise level becomes rather elevated. This is distracting, and seemingly disturbing, according to other guests at my table. I think the food is worth the... More

We enjoy eating here in downtown Fort Wayne. The seafood is always fresh and properly cooked. The banana cream pie use to be very good. Not sure now as the last time we were there it was served in a bowl!?!? There was hardly any crust. Should have asked server. We have never had a bad meal there.

Everything is made fresh, seafood is sold on site. The atmosphere is casual yet classy. Dinner options change based on what is fresh that day.

This is a place we return to every year for our anniversary. The seafood is excellent and we love the eclectic atmosphere. Sometimes there is even live music. It's a medium-high end priced restaurant and I would frequent more often if I lived closer.

One of the best seafood meals I've had in Indiana. Love the fish market so you can take fresh fish home to fix. The guys behind the counter were even helpful on how to best fix the fish. Hard to find a better seafood option in Indiana.
