Three of us went for dinner and enjoyed it as usual. All three had clam appetizers and two had lobster roll for dinner. I had a small plate crab cake, smashed sweet potatoes and asparagus. It was a perfect size. The only negative concerns the parking situation. They now offer Valet parking and they use the large main lot for... More

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, sitting dockside together, enjoying delicious fresh seafood rawbar, followed by some of the best scallops & shrimp ever, with a reasonably priced chilled Chardonnnay. Our lovely server Emily was just a delight , & congratulated us & took a nice photo of us by the railing with the harbor behind us... More

Place itself was nice but not large, so seating a little tight. Good fresh but pricey- had a combo platter for $31 which had 5 small shrimp, a few scallops, small lobster tail, and small amount of linguini. Negative part- waitress didn't ask if we needed more drinks when dinner served and seemed to forget about us after dinner served.... More

I love the bar ambience more than the food. The tiki bar is so much fun and the live music is awesome. Don't like the sushi at all. The fish dishes are tasty and so is the shrimp with sauce.

The shrimp scampi was very good but the rice & vegetables were just average. No bread or salad came with dinner. Fresh seafood but too high priced for what you get.

For my husband & I, this our year-round go-to place for dinner. We eat out almost every night when we're down here, and we seem to go to Klein's most often. The location is lovely....right at the foot of the bridge on the water. Outside dining is our choice....there are even heaters in the winter. We have come here for... More
