Went here for my son's 25th birthday. The menu has an excellent selection of fresh fish, and also has shellfish, meat, etc. The crab meat martini was fantastic; mussels were good but not remarkable. The 1-1/2 pound lobster was priced at $44 (side included, no salad) and was sweet and delicious. Bouillabaisse should have had more fish in the broth.... More

Wonderful fresh fish selection and BYOB. I had the swordfish which was grilled with lemon and butter, very good but a little over cooked. Overall the food was great, would recommend it to anyone in the area with a taste for seafood.

Situated on the main drag in town and adjacent to the University this local seafood spot brings in their seafood daily. The service had flair, attention to detail and a sense of humor. The lemon sole was best ever, the house salad was top drawer and the byob nature of the place adds a fell good dimension to the cost... More

Our waitress knew here stuff every Oyster Sweetness and Salinity and Texture. The Lady Chatterley from Nova Scotia became our favorites. The Mussels with the Mustard and Cream Sauce was by far some of the best Mussels I have ever had. Jalapeno Grilled Shrimp was very good. The Pistachio encrusted Rainbow trout was incredible and finished the night. A little... More

Without any question this is the best seafood restaurant within the Princeton area. We frequent this place and have never been disappointed with the food or service. Why "the best time of year?" The noise level is terrible and now we can eat outside during this pleasant weather. Make a reservation and don't hesitate to wait for an outside table.... More

Nice neighbor gem. Fabulous seafood restaurant which is BYOB!! I cannot think of a better way to enjoy fresh seafood than with one's own wine selection. On this evening, the oyster selection was excellent....we chose East Points (NJ), Paradise Coves (British Columbia) and Kumamotos (Japan).

This is a very nice restaurant. We sat outside. All of the fish entrees were very fresh. Wild salmon. The halibut and the wild trout were superb. Got to try the crab and guacamole "martini". Very very good. The evening was perfect and weather outside. The only issue is the did not have a liquor license so we went next... More

If you're looking for simply prepared, fresh seafood this is the place. The menu is huge with fish I've never heard of before. I had a selection of oysters to start. All were great. Then I had New Zealand Suzuki mulloway fish. What? I never heard of it either but it was delicious. It was prepared with lemon butter and... More
