Seafood night

The food is ok not like it used to be. The prices have been creeping up while the or toons are shrinking. It's a shame. The prices are too high for the portions u get.

When you just want seafood, don't want to pay an arm and a leg and don't mind eating off of paper plates, this place is pretty good. Very nice workers they had helping. One girl who was helping in the dining room this week with short hair was super helpful and very nice to my family and I.

The place looks nice and clean, but that's all. I went there for first time to have a lunch with my son, we choose that restaurant based in reviews, reason I write this one. I asked for sparkling water, the girl who was taking my order asked to an older woman and this one said to her to make the... More

If you're looking for tablecloths candles and atmosphere, don't come here. If you want fresh seafood, always cooked perfectly, at reasonable prices, this is the place. No frills, order at counter and pick up when ready.( Drinks sold at a separate counter.) We ordered cajun catfish, which is hard to find on Long Island, and calamari. Everything was cooked just...

I went to Southside before Christmas to buy some salmon. I was very impressed by the fact that the fish case was empty (they hadn't loaded it yet). Well, the fish was terrific! Today, I took my mom there for lunch because she wanted a Lobster Roll. She said it was perfect, not too much mayonnaise. I had the Crab... More

This restaurant isn't a sit down restaurant with a waiter. You wait in line, place your order and wait for your number to get called. While you wait they have a bar for drinks and a clam bar for some appetizers. My favorite here is the calamari with linguini. As a kid I used to get the shrimp basket, which... More

Love seafood, not a big fan of picnic style dining, plastic utensils, being charged for a lobster cracker or cafeteria setting. Food is very good. I prefer to order from the fresh side, cook & eat at home……..just saying.

This is our favorite lobster place. Casual dress is a must, you will be carrying your own tray of food. The price is the best you can find, don't go by what's listed on the menu - ask what else they have - especially for sides. Order your main course and soup on what side of the restaurant, drinks and... More
