“Great neighborhood joint!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

In a small strip mall at Monkey Junction, I found a very nice place to eat. I'm single and tend to sit at the bar to A) talk to someone(bartender/other bar patrons) and B) watch the TV that usually adorns most any bar. Food was very good. Eddie, the barkeep was a riot! I have since been back a second time! I will go again too!

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

I just had some of the best scallops ever, and everyone else at the table was very happy with their meal too. Everyone's meal was cooked to perfection, not overdone the way you find at so many restaurants. This now is my favorite seafood place in town, and I can't wait to return!

“fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Our party of four ordered dinners including fried shrimp, fried scallops & steak. The seafood was very fresh & tender and prepared with the perfect amount of breading. The person who ordered the steak said it was very good also. The prices we reasonable for the quality & portions offered. Our waitress was pleasant & attentive and answered all out questions regarding portion sizes. I appreciated that someone in management stopped by out table to ask if everything was to out liking.
As mentioned in other reviews this restaurant is in a strip mall, a bit off the beaten path, but once inside the atmosphere is clean & relaxing with the typical nautical theme. I would definitely return for delicious seafood if I go back to the area.
