We enjoyed excellent al fresco service from fast, friendly, and knowledgable waitstaff, and felt very welcome as numerous servers pitched in to help, and they all knew what was going on. The list of fish offerings was extensive, and most were wild-caught, bravo Blue Point! I enjoyed the fish and chips (fries hot and clean but would be better fried... More

We went with a party of 12. We were seated promptly. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was quite good as was the overall atmosphere. It would be a 5 star rating except the chairs are quite uncomfortable to the point it makes me hesitant to return. Several of the adults and even the 13 year old complained... More

I love this place. Food is great but you gotta love fish and seafood. Staff is super friendly (it's the kind of place they remember your name). It's a fun place with comfortable, festive atmosphere and ample out door seating. Very busy because it is that good. Other than being busy the only downside is that every so often it... More

We made reservations for 6:45 pm on a Wednesday and the place was packed with 30+ minute wait for those without reservations. As soon as we were seated the wait staff brought bread and water and immediately opened our bottle of wine (no uncorking fee). They carefully and slowly discussed the features of the menu (no specials, the menus are... More

This casual place has many many types of fish and seafood to choose from. If I lived in the area I would probably be going 3 or 4 times a week just so that I can try everything. My wife and I shared the RHODE ISLAND CRAB & CLAM CHOWDER. Delicious! I had the ICELANDIC ARCTIC CHARR that was absolutely... More

Excellent meal last night. Started with Little necks and perfectly grilled octopus. Salads were nice. The fresh Suzuki Mulloway was a perfect fish, new to is. Pistachio crusted trout was also perfect. The crab cakes (booked as jumbo lump) had very few jumbo lumps. Key Lime Pie was superb.

Delicious meal. Great lobster bisque, good kid's menu, lovely seafood dishes, great service. Surprised that the prices were so high at a BYOB place, but ok. Delighted with the salad - greens with candied pecans and a goat cheese. Can see why they have such a high rating. So happy we had dinner there.

This is about the best seafood you can get in Central New Jersey. My only critisism is the noise on busy nights. It's therefore best to come early or late for dinner.

This is a great spot in Princeton. Our waitress, Virginia, was pleasant and attentive. The only negative was when the food was delivered the guys who brought it didn't seem to know who ordered which dish. I had the NE clam chowder and the barrel fish. The chowder is good though certainly not the best I've tasted. It seems to... More

The ambience at the restaurant is always superb. Friendly staff is also a plus. Despite being a huge fan of the restaurant I would have to say that the last few visits the food really was not top of the line. A simple tuna steak and the raw bar were excellent, but anything that was a creation such as paella... More
