“LOVE THIS PLACE”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Fresh seafood everytime... nothing is FROZEN as seafood is delivered ALMOST daily! I wish the menu was a little more elaborate than just seafood (like get a veggie, salad and potato). Overall GREAT, eat her once a week.

“Grace is our gal!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

Grace makes this place what it is. We love it ! So much fun to go there on a Friday or any night for that matter. Love it when our youngest son comes in from Colorado and plays his guitar and sings there. Great seafood too!

“Great Seafood”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

We enjoy eating hear as they have excellent seafood. Don't expect sides (bread, salad, etc.); it is seafood and soup only, but a great experience if you want to enjoy a meal of various kinds of seafood. We've been several times and enjoy the experience each time. Once you go, you'll want to return.

“This place gives mom and pop shops a bad name.”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

The restaurant itself was dark and lifeless...It reminded me of an old ghost town saloon. The shrimp we ordered were tasty and cooked to perfection, but VERY small for the price we paid, The crab legs were also cooked to perfection but they only came with one claw and I was speaking to other customers and they say that happens all the time. We weren't impressed AT ALL.
I hate feeling ripped off! I like to frequent mom and pop shops but when they take your hard earned money and leave you looking like a sucker it just burns me up!
