Located just one block off the Strand in the wharf. Sit outside on the patio if it isn't too hot. You can see the tall ship Elisa berthed right next to you. You can watch see all the goings ons in the harbor. Whatever fish you order, be sure they top it with crab, ponchetrain, or something else to take... More

A lot of places with a good view aren't necessarily a good place to eat. This is both. The service was very efficient as well.

Went in for dinner after a day of shopping & was surprised at the quality of the food. I had some Brochettes of shrimp stuffed with cheese, pepper & bacon wrapped & grilled. We are inside, because it was a very hot day, but next visit we will sit on the deck.

There is something about looking out a window at a historic ship, drinking a local beer named after it, having a fantastic seafood dinner with your loved ones that defines vacation. So have an Elissa, look at the Elissa, enjoy your meal, but most of all...enjoy the experience with your loved ones.

We have been eating here for years, most of the time for lunch. We set outside on the harbor the view never gets old and the activity on the water never stops. From cruise ships going or coming back from a trip it is fun. Also working tugs assisting offshore rigs coming in for repair. The dolphins are always moving.... More

Seated by the window, it was a real treat to watch the dolphins in the bay. My flounder fish sandwich and my husband's blackened redfish was perfectly prepared. The key lime pie was a great choice to end the meal and a perfect portion for two! A little pricey, but you pay for what you get - well worth it!

I read some questionable reviews, but we tried it anyway after our visit to the Seaport Museum. The food and service were excellent!! The Crab Queso was amazing and every entree we had was delicious, hot and cooked perfectly. Dessert was a highlight too! Our server Hannah was very informed about the menu and offered her recommendations. Our wait was... More
