Stopped in on a rainy night for some seafood and a cold beer. Nice local bar where everyone is known. A pound of Steam Shrimp with Old Bay sauce and then a dozen oysters on the half shell topped it off. Limited seating, but pull up a stool at the bar and enjoy the setting and food. Draft beer nice...

Great food but small bar and seating limited. Shrimp and oyster are very good. Prices are expensive but what you expect

We went after labor day, the fish and chips were basically frozen fish sticks that were over done, the beer was cold , the service was slow but they were busy. We may give them another chance just because of the ambiance. Just don't order the fish and chips.

Service and food were great! We had muscles, crab legs, peel and eat shrimp and all were steamed perfectly. Staff were outstanding and hustled to satisfy customers!

This very little restaurant was loud and slammed pack, so we figured we were in for a treat. The problem is both the wife and I had the brilliant idea of ordering a Lobster roll at a place known for their steam pots. The spicy mustard remoulade covering the meat made this Lobster Roll just flat out bad. The French... More

Their jalapeno bottle caps are the best, and their seafood is fresh and perfectly cooked. Very fast professional staff, prices are extremely reasonable.

This is a "brown paper table cover" type of place, with an abundance of great seafood (couldn't resist the crab legs, the broiled shrimp, or the hush puppies). The preparation is simple (one of our crab legs was still frozen but they happily quickly cooked it!) No reservations - we waited nearly an hour and there's little air conditioning. But... More

My husband and I stopped by here while walking around the Board Walk and oh boy are we glad we did. This was the best meal we ate all weekend. We got the choice of 3 ... Steamed oysters, crab legs and shrimp. It was a gracious plenty and so good. And the beer is good and cold. Service was... More

Very small, meager place with overpriced, very pedestrian food. Steamed clams were good, but way too costly. Difficult place for kids -- only seating for families or parties of 6 is high stools and high table. One wait staff for the entire place -- long wait for food that was very mundane. There are much better places to eat in... More
