“Great seafood. Classic restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

After declining the initial table offered, (in the middle of a high traffic area near entrance), we were seated in an intimate booth and a pleasant, efficient server. We each choose from the fresh fish suggestions and were not disappointed. Veggies crisp, potatoes flavorful, house salad fresh, bread could have been warmer.

“Great Seafood Great Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Dined here on a Sunday night thinking it would not be very busy, but there were still a lot of people dining. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, service was excellent and the food was wonderful. Only homemade would be better if you were an excellent cook or had a famous meal you make.

“Warm atmosphere and good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We really enjoyed our dinner with Cajun accents, warm wood-paneled walls and booths, and good service. It was a great way to get to know Portland.
