“A Whole in The Wall Fish place.”
Reviewed October 27, 2006

This restaurant is not fancy and is not in a tourist area. It’s an older building and a little crowded. That said it’s the place to go for delightful fish.

We went on a wed in October and the place was packed. We ate at the bar to avoid a long wait. Service was friendly and good. Wine prices were fair. The fish though was great. Try the specials. Scallops and Shrimp are very good choices. I saw what others were having and all looked great.

Remember to make reservations. An excellent choice.

“Go for the fish”
Reviewed September 15, 2006

Had lunch and the lobster bisque and swordfish was great.. the pork chop was dry and tough.. Stick with the fish here and you should be okay.. will try the crab cake next time.. the guy rambled off 10 items not on the menu as specials.. but i have a feeling that the items available everyday.

“Wonderful!”
Reviewed August 10, 2006

If you are seafood lover than this is your place! Absolutely the freshest of fish served. Make sure you make a reservation as the place is continually packed. We ate there two nights in a row and customers were still streaming in at 9: 00 PM.

The crab cake and sea scallops combo is out of this world. I also had a herb crusted halibut fillet that was hevenly. Our friend had a whole (yes, head and tail attached) deep fried rock fish that made everyone in the resturant stop and stare. He said it was very good too :)

The great staff certainly add to the experience. It is an extremely busy place but all the staff are very friendly, efficient and very professional.

Eat well here, my friends.
