SOME OF THE BEST FISH I HAVE EVER EATEN IN MY LIFE! We had bluepoint oysters, crab cakes, and salmon bruchetta. Add their cornbread muffins they deliver to your table & you are in foodie heaven. I paired my food with a Rose Sangria. This...More

2nd visit. Lobster bisque soup was great. Jumbo Shrimp was great. You must try the lobster cobb salad. It is one of the best we ever had. It was filling and many succulent lobster pieces filling the salad bowl. The downside is the Connecticut lobster...More

You cannot make a reservation here on Friday or Saturday night. On those nights, its a consistent 40-60 minute wait. In fact, while you are waiting, people are rudely shoving their way past in the entrance area. It's like being on the metro during rush...More

Although the menu is limited, The sea food is excellent. They have several great appetizers. We love their mussels in particular. The atmosphere is casual but real nice. Service is very good. Because of that, we go there regularly.

I agree with Buffaloman's assessment. Traffic will more than likely be horrible, so I would wait until at least 5:30 pm, maybe even 6:00 pm for your dinner reservation, just to be on the safe side.
