I highly recommend this restaurant if you are looking for some good reasonably priced seafood. My husband ordered the broiled sea bass and I had the broiled snapper. Both were well seasoned and cooked perfectly. We would not recommend the fries but they do offer...More

Grease galore... Just ran out of Tums. Clam chowder tasted bad. Blooming onion was too greasy to eat. Assorted fried fish platter was tasteless. Not a good pick for seafood.

We had the lighter plate. It was way more than enough. We all took some home. They offer hand battered onion rings that were delicious with several options to dip them in. The wait staff was excellent. They were able to give good info about...More

Occasionally, we run out from work for a casual lunch. This is a fried seafood restaurant that is reasonably priced. The service is very good. (Clare is the best!)
