“A pleasant surprise for chain restaurant.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

We had a party of 7, included two children 5 and under. We sat outside on the deck. I was worried about eating seafood at a chain restaurant but I ended up here writing this good review. We started with a some cocktails and apps and it turned out it was happy hour so we go happy hour deals. :) We ordered some calamari and some lobster nachos which were fantastic. My daughter and I shared the Crab Daddy feast which was Snow, Queen and King crab legs, corn on the cob and potatoes. It was just enough for two of us after the shared apps. The others in our party had a variety of seafood, including the coconut shrimp, or chicken. I did have a piece of key lie pie for dessert, which wasn't bad, but I have had better. Everyone enjoyed their choices. They even had a magician who also made balloon animals for the kids. Occasionally, you would get the dancing waiters/waitresses, which the kids enjoyed. The service was great and it was a nice way to end our family vacation.

“Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Food was good but is a little over priced for what you get. We shared a Joe's Original Steam Pot. We ate everything that was in the pot but we both were ready to eat again within a hour or two.

“Fun place to eat seafood and beach type drinks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We stopped in to get some appetizers and drinks and we were pleased with the food, the drinks and the service. The fried clams are the best I've ever had. Very juicy and the coating was excellent. They have some new summer drinks which hit the spot! Service was great and when we asked to substitute an item, they said no problem.

“Not impressed!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

While traveling on business, my colleagues and I visited later in the evening about 45 minutes before closing. We were not welcomed at all. The service was terrible. Our drink orders were wrong, the food came out wrong, and neither the server or the manager was remotely apologetic. Will not return!!!
