Always a fun dining experience. Selection are very fresh and appealing. The wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive without being a pest. Service is well paced. Rt. 6 appeals to singles and couples, young and more. They do a great brunch on Sundays!

My wife really wanted to try this place, so we went for her birthday. The service was great. All of the waitstaff were attentive and ensured that we never felt abandoned. The food was only so-so. I know Stephen Starr's restaurants are about atmosphere but more effort should have been put into the food. We had the crispy fried Maryland crab "bombs" for a starter. The crab was okay but the cocktail dip did not improve the flavor. I had the striped bass with a tomato caper salsa. Admittedly, I find fish to be boring but the bass was not distinctive. And the salsa was no help. And I was disappointed with the house fries (bland) and roasted root vegetables (boring). My wife had the fisherman's platter (fried fluke, scallops, shrimp and calamari) which she could not recommend. She felt the breading took away from the taste of the seafood. The best thing about the meal (other than the company) was the Amber Woodchuck Hard Cider.

Route 6 surprised me with fresh seafood and awesome drinks. Going during happy hour is even a better deal with awesome prices.

The atmosphere at this place is great. Upbeat, friendly and comfortable. We particularly appreciated our excellent service from the maitre d', waitress and valets. Unfortunately though, the food was only okay.

Six of us had dinner, and all thought the appetizers and entrees were excellent. A good touch was the ability too choose the 2 sides you wanted. Service was attentive and pleasant.

The motif was shore based, with straight back chairs and displays of shells. The tables were placed too close together, but conversation was easy.

Parking was chancy, but we found a spot on circling the block. Valet was $12.
