We love this place, and my husband and I agree that the tempura soft crabs are the best thing on the menu. Availability can be an issue, so we called ahead and asked if they were serving them that day. We were assured that they were. We arrived before 6, were seated right away, and told our server that we... More

We've gone here a handful of times, each time hoping to like it more than the last based on how much others seem to like the restaurant. Each visit the food has just been OK...not great but not terrible. Tried the filet mignon on a recent visit...quality of steak was very bad.

My boyfriend and I came here for dinner recently. We started off with the ahi tuna starter and the wasabi mayo was a great match for the fresh fish. I had the crab cakes for the entree, and it did not disappoint! Large portions, huge lumps of crab. My boyfriend got the halibut in the lemon butter sauce, very tasty... More

Rating this restaurant not only on food but also on the way management handled our Living Social coupon. Food was 3 stars. The coupon was one where we paid $20 and were supposed to get $40 toward the dinner. There was a LOT of fine print with this deal, much more than other restaurants we used a Living Social at....

high quality fresh fish dishes....not inexpensive but costs are offset by your ability to bring your own drinks. Excellent fresh bread with your meal.

I went with a coworker. We both ordered shrimp salad sandwich. The taste was just ok. It was a little expensive. The place was a little outdated. I would recommend several other places on Frederick Rd.

A great meal begins with the confidence that all the ingredients are top quality and with seafood especially it's the freshness that really counts. Not that the taste, service and ambiance don't matter but it all begins with the freshness. I believe the only way to get my seafood any fresher I'd have to be on the boat and bringing... More

This restaurant is a wonderful little gem in Catonsville. It is a little more upscale than some of the other eateries in the neighborhood. The food and the service were excellent. They have a great selection of food but it is BYOB. We had a table in the window overlooking main street and it was a very nice for a... More

Last weekend decide to go back to my fav place to eat. After reading the previous couples take on the service and food, I was a bit taken back by their review...I have never had bad service nor a meal here...atmosphere was nice..waited at the bar until our table was ready....which by the way, on a busy Saturday night after...

Haven't eaten there for awhile. It's always so crowded! Food has always been above average, but there is no alcohol served....BYOB.
