Really good food highly recommends the shrimp dishes. The outside tables are your best options. Gets very busy late night.

I really like this place and have been coming here quite a while. The bar is good, the food is good, and there is plenty of seating. I've never had a bad dish here.

Good things 1st. Clean, Great View of Marina, Some outdoor setting and great clam chowder.

Now the bad. WAY TO SPICEY for me. The waitress warned me so I asked for something with no spice. I good the crab cakes. WRONG move, half way thru 1 cake my mouth was on fire. So I asked for a Cesar sallied. I though I was on a hidden camera. I got a head of lettuce cut in half with cheese and Cesar dressing on it.

Sorry but I will NEVER go there again.

Many people raved about this restaurant so I was excited to try their food. My sister order Killer Shrimp with angel hair and I ordered fish and chips. We were both disappointed. With a broth that simmers so long, I expected a bit more flavor. I did enjoy their rum based cocktail Pieces of Eight and their chocolate chip ice cream cookie dessert. Personally, if I return to the restaurant, I would just go for drinks and dessert.

People who know me know that I hate fish, yet I found myself walking into this restaurant thinking quite the opposite and considerably enjoyed the shrimp. From entrance, the staff were friendly and seated and immediately served us chillled water which was a nice side note, especially since it was hot. We then were told of the restaurants speciality dish which is the "Killer Shrimp" which is a pound-ish of shrimp in a spicy broth. We were then told the other alterations of this dish (e.g. Shelled, With pasta, With rice). We then ordered and I chose the "Killer Sandwich". Our drinks arrived quickly followed by our food. The sandwich arrived as a baguette with shrimp and vegetables served with a huge pile of sweet potato fries and the broth on the side. Once eating, I was enjoying the flavour of shrimp with spice and great sweet potato fries. It was definitely worth stopping by and I would recommend it to anyone especially considering the price for 4 people was low.

A Little side note, the portions are very big but are still enjoyable. Also, when they say what level spice it is, I would say around a 7/10.
