Very nice atmosphere! We had crab legs and the sea bass which were wonderful. Our service was very good. The only complaint was that the food was not horrible hot, just warm. Excellent flavor though!

I took a friend and myself to lunch to a place we had never eaten. She ordered fish tacos and I order the Shrimp and Scallop Scampi with pasta and shredded pieces of zucchini. It was absolutely the perfect lunch. I had some left over to bring home and it heated up just the way it tasted when it was... More

Paula's crab cakes are the best! Made with love for sure! Delicious! Salmon is also one of my favorites! Jean Marie Boykins

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 cake, and an almond... 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.
