Went there with the family fir my wife's birthday. Two of us had the lobster pasta, was good but not excellent, son had the lobster roll, he said to remind him next time to nit order it again, daughter had the cold platter of crab...legs, oysters, and shrimp, she said it was very good, wife and son-in-law had the halibut w/charred coliflower w/apple garnish, they both liked it a lot. Overall the meal and atmosphere was very good and we'll probably go back. However, I do wish that they would add/update their menu with some new items.More

Visited my son at KU. He wanted to go there because he said they have good oysters. I ordered 3 things and they were all terrible. 1) Bang bang shrimp is NOT greasy battered shrimp with a terrible sauce. It was horrible. 2) Cup of...clam chowder - had HAM in it and tasted like ham soup. Had no clam taste at all. Just dreadful 3) Their house bread - I thought this was inedible but my son ate it. The service was top notch except the servers were dressed like they were going to a party on a lake. It was a terrible experience and the prices were high considering how terrible it was.More

If you love oysters, this is your go to place. The fish and chips are great as is the Paella. Unlike most places their Happy Hour goes until 6:00 P.M.

Really excellent. We're new to Lawrence, visiting for the first time, and frankly we did not expect to find great seafood in what may be the city as far from an ocean as there is in the US. But wow. We went twice in two...days. The paella was excellent. The crab cakes, creatively delicious. My wife had the arctic char and said it was out of this world. And try the roasted brussels sprouts to start -- excellent. We will definitely be back. When we're back.More

I guess I should have assumed that seafood in Kansas is a stretch. It is. The clam chowder was great, but it was all downhill from there. The goat cheesecake was a nice surprise. Everyone ordered something different ... crab cakes (where was the crab),...tuna nachos (where was the tuna) and bang bang shrimp which had too much coating.More

The pan seared salmon was excellent, but the rest was very disappointing. The server was not rude, but was not particularly friendly or helpful in pairing wines. The crab cakes were mushy and cold. The bread, which was burnt, was an extra $5 for 5...small slices. I don't care if the bread is from a local bakery - it was a rip off. I could live with that, but three of our guests ordered the snow crab legs and they were a joke. Tiny, tiny snow crabs (and yes, I understand they are not King Crab legs) served with NO sides whatsoever? Really? My guests left hungry. Not a good experience.More

Quite simply one of the best restaurants in the entire metro area. Unique and creative food with quality ingredients. Their cocktails are wonderful and the wine list always has some wonderful surprises. Our go to spot.

Recently visited this gem of a restaurant for the first time and were delighted with the food, atmosphere and service. The appetizers, tomatillo soup and clam chowder, were perfect for a chilly night. The star of the evening, paella, revealed a perfect so rat and...although light was very satisfying. The EVOO served over a fig compote made a lovely end to a great meal. Service was excellent and we enjoyed meeting, Laura, Kyle, and Nicole - all cheerful and professional, and knowledgeable about the food and wine. Will return.More

I've avoided this restaurant as I don't eat fish, but I met friends there for happy hour and was quite pleased and surprised at the choices I had! I had the cheese curds, as well as some of the tuna nachos

We sat outside which was nice. We especially enjoyed the salmon. We also ordered a bread place and the bread was exceptional. The Old Fashioned drink was OK so I tried a different drink, Absyenth and Lime, which was... well different... I did not enjoy...it but I like their creativity.More

If you’re looking for wonderful fish and made with a lot of creativity you’ve got to go to the Mass Fish Market. The staff is helpful and so nice; they made our evening perfect!

Salmon ordered was flavorful per our two diners. I ordered Lobster linguini. They were out of lobster and subbed in Prawns. Good but I will go back for Lobster linguini. Oyster were succulent. Ratoitoille was delicious. Enjoyed ambience.
