My wife and I stopped by for dinner before visiting Disneyland. This is a large, family- friendly restaurant with attentive wait staff. We ordered the traditional steam pot of seafood that included corn on the cob, sausage, potatoes, shrimp, and crab. The food came out quickly so they have the menu down to a science.

We order a crab meal. It's fine bit salty but the service is very good, maybe if we comeback to LA we will visit this restaurant again and try something else..

We stopped here whilst visiting Disneyland, the service is great and they even come around and take your photo free of charge. The food wasn't to bad a little bit pricey and different to Australian sea food but all in all a great place to stop for a meal

Had dinner herewith family around 10pm on a Saturday. It was not overly crowded as some locations have been for us. We were seated promptly and enjoyed our dinner together on the outside porch.
