“LOVE THEIR SEAFOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Although they do not serve lobster and shrimp with their eyes and claws bulged out all over your plate, they do serve them up in varying dishes. However, I opt for their Ahi Tuna mostly as well as their Florida Cobb salads and crab cakes. The service can be real iffy, if you will, but the food has always stayed consistent. Everything is extremely fresh...none of that fishy, 80 day frozen stuff you get at many of the chained restaurants that claim they're amazing. The flavors that come from their simple dishes to most complex entrees are definitely something to brag about. I honestly wouldn't go any where else around her for seafood. It's the best you're going to get consistently for not living near a real saltwater shore.

“Very very good food and reasonably priced. You would not believe it was a chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

The quality of the food and service is something I would expect from 4 and 5-star restaurants; not a big chain. Everything is fresh and made-to-order Their lobster tails are delicious and reasonably-priced (28 for two tails, vs spending that for one tail at a "gourmet" restaurant).

“Great Food - Hard to Believe it's a Chain!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We are so glad we tried this place! The food was excellent and priced appropriately. Even though we knew it was a chain, it just didn't feel like one. The service was great, the portion sizes were perfect. My only regret is that there isn't one near where I live!

“AMAZING EVERYTHING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

I LOVE this place! I have had to travel to Buffalo for work 3 times in the last 4 months and I have eaten here every time I go up there. The food is amazing for a chain seafood restaurant. I have never had a bad meal. Everything is always fresh and delicious. The service is always fantastic too. The staff is very attentive and friendly. There is one in particular that is just the sweetest and best employee they have. Nicole is the best!! I hope to get back there soon!

“Surprise find attached to a mall, this place is amazing! Reasonable prices for fantastic gourmet high quality food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

Brought my parents and aunt based solely on the other reviews and found them to be beyond accurate. The food was phenomenal and worth more than we paid, and everyone left satisfied. Seafood, steak, Asian, dessert, everything was top notch. I had two appetizers for dinner and was totally filled.

Personal touch too...The owner was super kind and made an appetizer himself for our family member (who couldn't join us as he was in the hospital) to make sure it wasn't accidentally contaminated with shellfish.
