We had dinner and caught a live band while here. The food was incredible but it is very tight seating. Although we had a reservation, it still took quite some time to seat our party of 8. Drinks were VERY watered down. It would have been nice to have a real cocktail considering my drink was $8.50. 2 people at... More

I've eaten quite a variety off their menu. The white clam linguine is one of the best I've ever had. The atmosphere and staff are excellent... Highly recommend

This place is amazing from food to service!! The crab and artichoke dip is to die for. We got the Baltimore crab dinner. It had 8 crabs in it!!! Filled us up. Melissa out sever was great. She checked on us but wasn't pushy about the time.

The manager was horribly uncaring. We went in and were told 1 hour but BC we had children they would call us. We left our number and after 1 hour ended up next door BC the kids were hungry. We ordered 3 dozen clams and 1 dozen mussels to take home. It was a to go order and gave them... More

This place gets crowded and the wait is long at times but the food well worth it! The entertainment was excellent at night.

One of the few places I know where you can get a bucket of real crabs many different ways in NJ. The owner usually makes the rounds to greet guests- which is nice. My daughter loves the bacon cheddar burger (land lubber :-)). A bit pricey and usually crowded but a great occasional jersey shore treat. Live music sometimes too.... More

An old favorite, always good. They have a great happy hour, friendly and affordable. If you are doing dinner, get there early or get comfortable at the bar, in season it could be a wait. But well worth it. Service was terrific and seafood fresh, crabs, shrimps, scallops, and lobster, have it all, its delish! You will often find local... More
