I heard about this restaurant from a few people who visit the area, and was told it was good. My experience was that the food was ok, and the service was questionable. I guess that's what you get when you come in the off season.

My partner and I had dinner there with some friends and the food was very good. This resturant is some what loud but that's because it is family friendly with lots of small children. The service was very good as well.

We love this place! The food is great, the service is wonderful, and the atmosphere is excited. We cannot imagine a better place for fish or shellfish. Also, they have an outstanding happy hour with more food and drink choices than any other restaurant we have visited. The place can get noisy on busy nights so don't go there then for a romantic dinner!

It's nice to go to a place that knows how to cook fish, and this is one of those places. The skewered shrimp were excellent and the scallops were not far behind. The broiled cod was the best I'd had since I was in Newfoundland. The blue point oysters were fresh but not as tasty as I thought they should have been. Whoever shucked the oysters was lacking a bit of skill. There were shell particles in a couple of them and some of the oyster bodies had been pierced in the shucking process. Our servers, Taylor and the newbie Meghan were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful.
