Great sea food. Went their 2 times on our vacation. Must eat outside!!!! Had the boiled shrimp and it was cooked perfectly (not dried out). You need to also try the shrimp with bacon and jalapeño inside that is deep fried. The only reason I didn't rate them a five is the service is HORRIBLY SLOW.

We had lunch here on a break between the aquarium and USS Lexington. The service was very attentive and there was live music as well. My husband had the catch burger (grilled mahi with grilled onions) and I had the crab cake sandwich. They were both divine. We actually planned on stopping again on our way out of town, but... More

Setting has potential -- that's got to be why the crowds come. Right off North Beach and the USS Lexington. Very little wind protection - my half-full beer bottle was literally blowing across the table! Ladies pull your hair back or wear a hat! This place is just okay if you're not in a hurry and don't expect much food... More

Party of 9 arrived at 7:30, no one waiting and they told us it would be about 10-15 minutes. The restaurant was half empty. 30 minutes later I asked what was happening. They said it was a large party. I told them we would split up and they said there were no tables near each other. After 2 hours we... More

Ate here before heading to the Aquarium and had a great time. Burgers were delicous and even though it started to sprinkle we sat under the porch and still got a great view of the Lexington.

It was wonderfully situated, had a live band, and excellent service. The food was phenomenal. Great seafood. The sauce that they had for the fish was divine! My husband and I have been... More

The two stars are for the ambiance of this restaurant. Its in a great location with the USS Lexington in the background. There is outside seating which is a great place to have a meal. We had no real complaint with the service. However, the food was something else. Two of us had ordered bowls of clam chowder. We received... More

Got to restaurant at 740. There were 20 tables ahead of us, but we understood.. it was a summer Saturday night, no big deal. 20 min later they called us to go, but just before we got to the table the waitress realized another party had moved from the bar to our table. Instead of asking the party to move... More

It was a horrible ,both food and service. Will never go back and just hope I don't get sick. Between the waiter mixing up all the orders and EVERYONE getting upset. Food and drinks wrong. It was just not good at all, they need to regroup badly!!
