Nice minus the smoke smell

The food was amazing. Every dish we each had was awesome. It's inside a casino where the smoke bath is soaked up in your clothes. We had to drive back home 4.5 hours away and we felt sick to our stomachs for the first 2 hours because of that smoke smell that was absorbed in our hair and clothes... read more

not exactly my choice but it s very fresh seafood. The main problem is having to walk thru a smoky casino. Other than that very good service and price.

They have the best variety of seafood you can crave for. You have to try there fried oysters, it is the best. We are well known for local grown oysters.

You get to sit up at the bar and watch your order being prepared for you. We've had great food there. Unfortunately sometimes you have to wait to get seats together at the bar, but it's worth the wait.

Fun place to go eat and socialize and the staff is very friendly, even if you drop your glass on the floor and break it or get so busy talking to people you meet there that you walk out and forget to pay (my bad). When you order the oyster stew ask your server who cooks it best and they'll... More

I dine singly quite often so I appreciate the seafood bar layout as I am able to interact with those at the bar while dining. I have had a wonderful clam chowder there as also a seafood pasta. The crab bisque is delightful. This last visit though, I am afraid the 1/2 lb of shrimp was a bit overcooked, but... More

Oh my goodness this is the best seafood! I had the crab bisque and crab cake and loved it! I can't wait to go back and try something else. Everything is so fresh and so yummy!

Wow the muscles were the best I've ever had and the pile of cracked crab was amazing. The soup was super delicious. They don't take reservations. You have to wait until the number of chairs you need become available at the eating bar. BTY I was impressed with the quality of the wine for 6 bucks.

Enjoy fresh fresh locally harvested seafood from steamers and mussels to crab and shrimp and selected salmon and halibut while you have your favorite cocktail. Small quaint atmosphere with big screens to watch the big game. The staff is excellent and continually checking on you. And you throw your shells into the trough outlining the bar! Great time and fun!!... More
