Went with a large group from work and was wondering if service and food would be up to their usual high standards and we were not disappointed. As always, the service was outstanding and the food was superb. I always stop to eat here when I'm in the area and have never been disappointed.

Plane restaurant with a fantastic menu. The chowder is top drawer and the swordfish is the best. The pearl and gorganzola salad is tops.

Try the pomegranate margarita and the seafood pasta. The pasta was full of huge pieces of lobster cooked perfectly. We also ordered the whitefish and lobster spring rolls. Everything was delicious. This place is classy. I was definitely impressed!

The Common Grill is a seafood lovers dream. An always changing variety of super fresh fish prepared artfully to order. For first timers "don't fall in love with the bread basket"! It comes out first and is loaded with some of the butteriest flaky rolls you'll ever eat. But try to limit yourself to one because the food fun is... More

Great restaurant primarily seafood and meat. Great, professional wait staff in a city-like atmosphere even though you get to be in small town Chelsea.
