sleazy ownership and female waitresses. many years ago it had great service and great food.
In 2013 none of them can inform you about the fresh specials.

Love this place - always has specials, great chef's, great bartender, great food. I visit here once a month, would go more often but live on the East Side of Chicago. Planning my next visit already!

Just left satisfied. Stopped by for snacks after shopping, and returned for dinner. Jumbo King crab legs delightful and excellent value. Not an upscale place, so what!

The seafood fresh, service was great and personable, the drinks were good. The atmosphere reminded me of the cozy, seaside restaurants along the Florida and California coasts.

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but the Ultimate Crab Combo comes with one full pound each of King and Snow crab as well as a generous yummy crab cake. The kids portion of snow crab and popcorn shrimp were generous and perfectly cooked. A bonus kids can choose any side so they don't have to have french fries. The chocolate martini was the best I've had (and I've had many). Highly recommend this restaurant.
