First, the salad bar consisted of a bag of lettuce & some extremely mushy pasta salad & some other sad looking veggies! When I ordered stuffed shrimp I was told it was cooked to order so it would take awhile & it certainly did! It was cooked to death! And my baked potato was not baked, it was cooked in... More

Went with my son and boyfriend who wanted seafood. We are locals and have been to most restaurants in the area. We were very pleased with our meals. They had fried shrimp and seafood platter. Hot and crispy. We were happy to see a real salad bar. Our waitress Theresa was excellent. We will definitely come back. We don't go... More

The place always has cars parked here so we stopped in but the food was not good and the waitress was not profesional. Wifes seafood was just average but my prime rib was tasteless and tough...NEVER going back.

My husband and I were looking for a good seafood dinner for our anniversary. A clerk at the local grocery store recommeded Primos, In Good Company and the Offshore Restaurant. We saw the sign at the Offshore Restaurant advertising Prime Rib and Lobster. Perfect, so we thought. Our first clue to leave should have been when I asked the waitress... More

When the server recommends only the fried food, it usually means the seafood is not fresh. I ordered the fried clams and they were actually excellent -- not greasy and very tender. My husband's fried haddock sandwich was not so good. The place is OLD. There were very few people in the place. I sent my wine back (it tasted... More

From the outside, this place doesn't look like much. A classic example of looks being deceiving! Great food, great cocktails and none of the "tourist trap" prices!

We were seated in a timely manner, however, we waited and waited and waited for our waitress who had said she would be right back. In the meantime other customers were being seated . We waited a few more minutes when she went right to customers who came in a full 10 minutes after us. She brought them all water... More

We ate dinner at the Offshore while vacationing in the area. The staff was great, the salad bar was good but the meals were just average. The bread and breaded zucchini appetizer were very good. The sauteed shrimp was OK, just tasteless and overcooked. The dessert menu looked good, but we did not try any because it was late in... More

Our small group meets monthly at this restaurant; this was my first time. The tilapia special at lunch was delicious. The owner, Phil, came to our table and was gracious.
