“Happy hour win!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

We went in because people coming out of the place were telling us to go in and that the food was great.

The ahi tuna was good so was the shrimp and the mahi taco was really good. Tried the oysters but as I had never had them before i can't judge, but others raved.

Get there for happy hour (ends at 7) and it's an absolute bargain.

“Great food.. great location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

The food was great... great fresh fish and seafood! Great drinks... We took some out of town friends here for a quick bite before hitting the town and we all had different kinds of fish and a great salad... It is usually hopping with people and is a fun atmosphere!

“Excellent lobster roll”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Very lively & loud atmosphere. Service was just okay. The lobster roll was very good but not as good as we got in Connecticutt. A little pricey for what we got.
