“Pretty good for a chain”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

You know what you are going to get here--a good choice of seafood and good service. The decor is not that spectacular, but the food and service are good. Usually lots of specials, too.

“Always a Treat”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great place for a meal to add to a PSU Winter sports weekend. Food is always great as is the service! Only problem is that everyone else loves it and you may just have to wait.

Best seafood place. The food is delicious and so are their mixed drinks. The wait staff and friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant is clean and it's a nice environment.

“What a surprise!”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Went here with a friend. We both ordered from the 4-course special (soup, salad, entree, and dessert). I had the chicken/tortilla soup, garden salad, grilled tilapia, and the chocolate brownie a la mode). All were tasty. The soup was spicy, the salad cold and fresh, the tilapia was nicely seasoned and cooked well, and the dessert was just the right size and not overly sweet. I highly recommend this special..and not a bad price at $15.99 plus tax.

“Decent Service and Standard Menu”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The seafood chain is susceptible to a lack of freshness about the seafood but for the price and location it is an OK value. Service is usually decent thanks to pretty perky college students serving the guests. Service is usually fast and the Chain Red Lobster specials and drinks are great. We prefer more local ma and pop places as that greatly influences the quality and creativity of the dishes -- which this chain does not have the liberty of.
