“Pricey but what seafood restaurant isn't”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Had dinner here and the food was really good and the portion size above average. Enough to share for sure. Clam chowder was top notch. Our bill for two of us was a bit pricey but what seafood restaurant isn't pricey.

“Great place to eat if two of you want steamed lobster...”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Loved the ambience and the casualness of this place - made it fun...however, the lobster dinner for one is pretty pricey - but it does come with a chowder, mussels and an ear of corn on the cob. It's $40...BUT if you buy the shore dinner for two, it's $67 - making it much more affordable.

“pretty good choice”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

We seemed to have limited choices within walking distance of our hotel. We went here based on the reviews. I ordered the poached salmon,which was perfectly cooked with fresh vegetables, also well prepared. The salmon was served with a peach puree which I did not care for. I would suggest that you have them put it on the side. My husband had the seafood platter which he enjoyed.

“Great outdoor dining on a beautiful Saint John evening”
Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

This was our first time dining here. What a surprise. The steamed clams were the best we've had in the Maritimes. The oysters were also great. Also enjoyed the fried clams which were great size- no strips here. The bacon wrapped scallops were very tasty. Will definitely be back for outdoor dining!
