Eating Out

All this is new for me. Early Friday evening my sister bragged about how great the seafood and entertainment was at Bracco's, so I gave in and said take me there. She ordered the lobster for me and clams and oysters for herself, and WOW! was my lobster beyond good. To my surprise, a live band... read more

I went here on Friday night with a few friends for dinner and was first charged $10 cash per person just to get in, we were then told that the money will be refunded after dinner. Fast forward 3hrs later and a $220 bill for some of the worst food we had and the music stopped after 11pm. We then... More

Our party of two stopped in at the "new" restaurant addition on a dreary, rainy afternoon recently. There were more servers and barkeeps than customers. We ordered a serving of fish and chips. The food took the better part of half an hour to appear, but was well worth the wait. Portion was pleasantly generous, ample for two. Fish was... More

Let me begin by saying that if I could give this place no stars I would for the lack of disrespect of the security guard that attacked me last night for the smallest thing that could have simply been stated. So after spending 40$ on what was called "the fishbowl" that apparently after drinking the full jar didn't even give... More

If you are heading done to Freeport the Nautical Mile, try out Bracco's Clam and Oyster Bar.If you clams and oyster or even a refreshing shrimp cocktail this is the place.

The food was good but a little pricey and it would barely noticeable if you were a table of two. It is priced for location the food is average. I would not go back as a group. Serves is probably good with couples but it is hide and seek with a group larger than five. We went there on Friday... More

Place is overpriced, food is very ordinary at best. And the music was terrible. You'd think they would play American music on the 4th of July . I wasn't expecting Yankee Doodle Dandy, but at least some classic rock or Motown or Sinatra. Four hours of reggiae music? On Independence Day? Are you kidding me? Most of the folks there... More

The food was very average......nothing special at all for the price....way too expensive for totally basic food. I realize that you are paying for the "ambiance", the guy playing music, etc. but for a day in June and not at all packed, I felt that it was way overpriced. When using the ladies room, in two different rooms there was... More

Beware: they added $17 on top of my $22 credit card charge, which I wouldn't have noticed I weren't vigilant about reviewing credit card charges. The overcooked shrimp and barely mediocre soup were hardly worth the original $22 charge. Skip it. It gets one star because I couldn't give it 0 stars.
