We celebrated my birthday at The Dead Fish. Wow, what beautiful atmosphere, views with outside patio citing. We were treated so well. We ordered our drinks, food, etc....Wow, the Ciopinno with all the seafood, crab, lobster, etc... was so delicious. The clam chowder was so hot and yummy. The salad with the shrimps, etc...was so yummy. The staff was there all the time asking if we needed anything. Then they surprised me with a plate of cake with candles and sang Happy Birthday to me.....So much fun.

Ah, it would have been great if a few table did not have screaming kinds. Why do parents do that to other diners? The menu is very varied and the fish is excellent. If only we did not have to continually raise our voices to communicate! Good wait staff

I loved this restaurant. It is in a surprising place that I had never been to. The restaurant is very big with different seating areas. The day we went we were hoping to sit outside, but it ended up being very hot and we were glad to be sitting in the air conditioned dining room.
We ordered the crab platter for four people. It was very good and a very generous portion.
I will definitely go back.
