Wife and I went here for lunch on Saturday and there was a minimal wait which was nice. The food was good and the staff was friendly. Will definitely eat here again.

The king crab roll was delicious with butter and the old bay seasoning in the slaw was a cool spicy delight. We sat on the top floor with great views of the Statue of Liberty. Great service and a busy fun place.
