great fresh seafood!

I was in long island for 2weeks and my mom took me here. We ended up eating here 4times during my trip! Lobster roll is outstanding. Alot of lobster meat, not too much mayo. Lobster Mac and cheese great, and shrimp salad over house salad delicious! Sad I no longer live in LI and can't go again!

I went to this restaurant with my boyfriend for lunch on our way out of town and we were blown away. This restaurant is also a fish market. Our lobster bisque was creamy, savory, and full of delicious lobster meat. We both ordered the flounder sandwiches with Cajun seasoning and absolutely loved them. Enormous helpings of fish and prompt, courteous... More

This is a seafood shop and a restaurant where you can get the freshest fish around. Try the all you can eat specials. Excellent food and soups. Love the lobster bisque, mussels in marinara sauce, baked clams.

Ate here twice as I really like fish though they have a broad menu. Everyone loved their own choice. The fish were very fresh and well prepared. Lobster and sea scallops were excellent. Great service. Highly recommended.

I ate dinner here twice this month. The first time I had stuffed flounder, and it was delicious. My next dinner, the flounder sandwich, came on a huge hoagie, and was not as impressive. For both dinners the cooked fresh broccoli and the salad were very fresh and tasty. The bread rolls were high quality. The service is very good... More

Not the fanciest of all places but food is good and the lobster bisque is the Best! Service is good. Great place to bring kids. Not the biggest parking lot and the intersection is a bit busy. A staple restaurant when in Port Jeff!

For a recent take out order i was given less than 3 pounds of lobster and charged for five pounds. When questioned, I was told by Jose the manager that the lobster " shrank" during cooking! In edition he was rude and hung up the phone on me. I understand mistakes in orders etc but the attitude makes me wonder... More

Good afternoon. I know we had spoke on the phone after the incident and I thought that the conversation ended on a positive note and was surprised to find this review today. As a long time customer and only having a problem this one time, I would hope that you would give us another chance. Mistakes do happen and the... More
