“Lobster and steak without paying thru the nose”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

It happened to be lobster festival when we visited so one or two tail dinners ranged from $20-$25. This included two sides and bread. The lobster was fabulous and I proudly wore my lobster bib to keep the butter from dripping onto my shirt. Steaks send other seafoods were on the menu, so plenty of choices.

“Horrendously Overpriced”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

It wouldnt be a bad spot if they didn't completely jam you, draft beer prices on par with Manhattan, oysters priced higher than Neptune (although buck a shuck on Tues/Thurs sounds good I'm sure there is a catch, like they run out after ten minutes), and sliders that were the size of dollar coins priced at $3 (beef, plus .30 for cheese), and $7 (lobster, you maybe get an ounce of lobster). I would say if they dropped their prices by 30% then maybe it'd be worth it....but Medford Square is a dump so there's really no reason to ge here, head to Davis or Porter, or even just to the nines.

“Not as good as before”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Came here a couple of time a few months ago, and had positive experience, this time less so. Never impressed by a restaurant which needs a tanned, buxom bleached blond as a hostess, instead of keeping focus on food quality. Waitress was clueless about beer selection, and recommended opposite of my taste, before asking me how I wanted pork chop cooked. Chop was cooked inconsistently. Carrots were out of a bag, overcooked. Potatoes were drenched in salt. Instead of asking why I didn't eat meal, waitress offered dessert. Won't come here again.
