“Better and more fun than Red Lobster but not your freshest seafood.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I had a gift card here for a steampot. I really like steamed seafood and I think the variety of their steampots is very good. Knowing seafood, I know most of it is frozen but I think the taste is not that bad for frozen seafood. They do use some good spices.
The atmosphere is fun and the wait staff are generally attentive and seem to be having a good time.
Just know what to expect when you go here. Fun place for the familes or special events. For a nice quiet, sit-down dinner wioth fresh seafood, there are other, better choices.

“So many other better choices”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

Went here on a Thursday evening and it was fairly empty. Our server was great, the beer was cold, the place was clean. The food was expensive, but that wasn't the problem. I just don't know how it's possible to make bad fish and chips. Ok, the chips were fine. The fish was tough. Seriously, it was tough. The outside wasn't burned, it didn't see over cooked, but it sucked. I never have to go there again, and I suggest you resist the urge.

“Best place for Crab.”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

My son loves Crab. He knows good crab when he eats it. Tried Red Lobster and the rest, and this is the best place. Clean, good service. Watch for periodic coupons as it's pricier, but definitely worth it.

“Don't waste your money on 'seafood'”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

First of, the seafood being served there is NOT fresh. They heat up frozen lobsters & crab legs! I had the Lobster Feast and the lobster was like rubber, the tail shriveled up to the size of a rubber band and the claw shell was bigger than the quarter size meat I was able to scrape out of there! The lobster and crab legs have been sitting in the freezer for awhile - the meat was dry! So save yourself some money and don't eat there!!
