This restaurant has a very extensive menu, so there's something for everyone. The food was very good, although maybe a little overpriced. The service was also good, and they did a nice job handling some large groups on a busy summer evening.

Just ate here once, usually lines to get in during dinner hour. I had the clam chowder and it was great!! Husband had oyster stew, wasn't impressed, but then he is used to canned oysters and I'm sure these weren't canned!

Great clam chowder...fast service, and a few blocks off of the beach facing the convention center. Cute spot. Feels a little like Red Lobster.

This restaurant is overpriced. Even with a 10 percent discount. The food was adequate, but not worth the price we paid.

We were lucky enough to arrive early, around 5;30, so we did not have to wait for a table. Our waiter was a sharp, smart, polite, young man, who came through with martinis as specified. The menu is just what we were hoping for in...More
