“I liked it but hubby didn't”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

I ordered the snow crab legs and my husband ordered the 4 oz steak and crab cakes. My food was good. My husband's on the other hand wasn't. The 4 oz steak is more like 2 oz...In fact I have never seen such a small steak in my life. I actually laughed. The crab cakes tasted like grease...funny expected good crab cakes since it's the name of restaurant. We never got rolls even though every other table had rolls. Finally asked for them. The coleslaw that comes with meal tasted like it was doused in vinegar. I had to spit it out. The onlyl good thing was the snow crab. I did feel sick later on though at the hotel. It is pricey...about $100 for two people.

“Superb service”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

Reservation made without and hassle and very attentive staff throughout the evening. Nothing was too much trouble. Scollops, fish and chips were all good as we're the crab cakes. The only letdown was the "stewed" tomato side dish that tasted like tinned tomatoes with a few under fried onions added. Apart form that pretty faultless and don't forget to leave room for dessert.

“Above average seafood, great service...”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Came while visiting family. I got the seafood pasta, which was good. Family got the seafood cobb salad and fish and chips. Everything was fresh and tasted great. Our waitress was great, no complaints. Owner/manager even stopped by to check on meal. I would return...
