This is a big place and the dinner line is usually out the door, which is probably the best recommendation. That said, the inside is all hard surfaces (think concrete floors) so it can be a very noisy place when it's full. One of our neighbors flat out refuses to go for that reason alone. Music from a multitude of slightly off, tinney-sounding speakers doesn't help either. The waitstaff is young and enthusiastic. The long bar is filled to capacity most evenings. Anything "flash fried" is a real taste treat--flounder, shrimp, scallops, etc. Not many restaurants along the east coast do cioppino--theirs will have you dreaming that you are back in Santa Barbara. When soft shell crabs are in season, they often have "whales" (their word) fried up plump and juicy. There is always an eclectic crowd with just one thing in common--love of fresh seafood thoughtfully prepared, reasonably priced and served in satisfying quantities.
