The copper bar that you sit at is great. The shrimp sauté with scampi sauce is extremely good. It has a well seasoned wild & white rice portion on one side, a generous pile of peeled shrimp in the middle and (if you ask for it) braised asparagus on the other side. If you don't ask for the asparagus, you... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant every time we eat here. Crab bisque, crab cocktail and the sauteed shrimp were delicious. Very enjoyable service from a helpful and friendly staff.

I found this place thanks to Trip Advisor. I was looking for a seafood lunch on my way from Shelton to Tacoma. The crab bisque was the best bisque I've had since my 1990s years in New England. Fantastic. I ordered a dozen raw oysters. They were local, fresh, and delicious. They were also larger than average, which meant that... More

For a casino restaurant, there is nothing fancy here just a great bar and great food. No tables, only a bar type setting with the troff for your clam and crab shells. You can order by the pound from the chaulk board or from the menu!!! We have never waited long for a seat usually just walk right in and... More

Highly recommend this seafood bar - our favorites are the clam chowder, crab bisque, crab cocktail, steamer clams and oysters - but it's ALL good - well worth the drive to Shelton!

Brought my dad here for his birthday dinner. The service, king crab, clams and clan bisque was awesome. Didn't mind waiting 15 minutes for a seat. Thank you, we will be back.
