They do a great job with the basic fish and shellfish but I personally can't get enough of their specials! I have never been disappointed! My only wish is for more comfortable chairs but then I might never leave!

They always have the freshest seafood. Pickup can be a long wait but worth it. It's a BYOB restaurant. Eating in this restaurant is nice, but it can get crowded.

After reading all the glowing reviews I thought that this would be a great lunch stop. After I can only believe that the reviews are written by the owners. Self seating in a large dining area we waited patiently for a server to find us. There were only three other tables at lunch time. Menus delivered, drink orders taken and... More

5 of us went for dinner Monday night and had some great meals... The muscles in garlic sauce was fabulous and so was the special halibut .. The shrimp over linguini was just ok. Service was slow and seemed out of sequence by when diners arrived. It's byob so that's good.

Enjoyed the food. Had a "shore" vibe without being near the water. Only complaint--when they say no substitutions, it also means no special requests. To get exactly what I wanted I would have had to buy two entrees; which was more than I could eat! Regardless, I enjoyed my meal.

Food is as fresh as can be. Place is always hopping. Locals enjoy coming in for the fresh seafood and great service and clean restaurant. Would highly recommend.
