The decor is lovely, the location is great and the view is quite nice. The food was well-prepared and tasty, but for the price I found the menu to be a bit uninspired. The desserts are not good.

I am a seafood lover, this restaurant has everything a seafood lover could ever want! I ordered the fish tacos and they were FABULOUS! The guacamole was AMAZING! The price wasn’t bad at all $12 for lunch, however, the other items on the menu were a bit pricey. I would paid the higher price after tasting the tacos! The Sea food tower was incredible, it had so much seafood! I highly recommend this place and I can’t wait to go back!!

Stopped in Providence en route to Boston, and several websites recommended for seafood. Looked quite formal/business based on the inside, however, the outside dining provided a great option with a 17 month in tow. In particular, as right next to South Main Street Park providing a good area to walk and/or run for the little one.

Food very fresh, well presented, staff very attentive –patrons on next table gave us a coupon for $15 off starter which paid for the oysters!

We spent a couple of days in Providence after dropping our senior daughter at college in Boston. Found this restaurant on tripadvisor and was not disappointed. Our hotel, Biltmore, even gave us a coupon for a free appetizer. We ordered everything from appetizer, soup, salad, entree, coffee and dessert. Everything was spaced out evenly over a 2 hr dinner and found the whole atmosphere very pleasing and not too loud, maybe because of the high ceilings. Our entire meal was excellent and tasty and will gladly come back again when in town.

The Seafood tower and platters are exellent. As fresh as can be even on Laborday. Usually the restaurant is busy with business people being downtown, but on hollidays is quiet and the service is excellen.
