“A little pricey, but worth it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Great little unassuming seafood place that is worth the wait and the slightly overpriced menu. Wonderful staff and wonderful food. Great place to go with friends or coworkers for a couple drinks. Maybe the best calimari I have had in a long, long time. Close to another great bar as well, Malone's, which is just across the street.

“Awesome seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Seafood here is awesome. Their seafood buckets and platters are flavored with this delicious butter that I just can't get enough of. Crab legs are always fresh and can be pulled out easily from their shells. I have been there a few times, and quality is always pretty consistence. Parking is a little tricky; they have a complimentary valet lot in the back, but finding the entrance can be difficult (you have to go behind neighboring restaurant). They don't seat you until the entire party is here and they do not take reservations, so make sure you have your whole party there.

“Seafood overload”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

Had oysters, clam chowder, beer and a bucket of seafood. Wasn't able to finish everything, but gave it a hell of an effort. The lobster was utterly forgettable, but everything else was fantastic. My oysters also had quite a bit of grit, I suspect a newbie of shucking them. Still delicious

“Good food and great after hour drinking spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Open til 4am is what I mainly liked but it was very crowded. The extremily large beers made this place worth it though.
