Diner Reviews
  • "Tables were close, so if the people next to your table were loud it was hard to have conversation with the people at your own table. I had the crab cakes and was disappointed. The crab meat was shredded and watery inside. The vegetables had no flavor nor did the crab cakes."

  • "We enjoyed the fresh steamed lobster on special that evening. What a treat! Server was friendly and helpful. I eat dinner here frequently and would recommend it to others."

  • "outstanding fresh fish.....service was great....since it is a small place reservations are advised.....wish they had a bigger location as tables are close......well worth a visit for the best fish meal around"

  • "The interior was beautiful, modern, yet warm and cozy. The wait staff were attentive but not overbearing. I would rate it higher except both my dinner guest and I found our dishes extremely salty..to the point that neither of us finished the fish."

  • "The restaurant didn't open until 11am. We arrived at 10:55 and the door was locked. Our fault that we didn't pay attention to opening time. It was a little weird standing outside waiting. The menu was great. It was what attracted us there. All the food was over cooked but good. The server was just okay. Not overly friendly, but not rude. I inquired about Easter Sunday and the server never got back to me with an answer. Where most places are overflowing on Sundays, there were only 3 tables. That wasn't a bad thing though. I think the value for the dollar was good. I might go back."

  • "we live close by, thought this would be a great place for an informal anniversary dinner, food was great, drinks were not (a drop of alcohol and much juice) husbands beer was good and cold) not a very friendly place, we felt very uncomfortable like we did not belong there, waitress was ok, bartender was not, as we left the restaurant, no one (employees) bothered to say good night or anything else, maybe they just didn't like the way we looked (inter racial couple celebrating their 30th anniversary)"

  • "I made a reservation just in case I needed it, but when I arrived around 9 pm, I was the only one there with the exception of a woman at the bar. Nobody else arrived at all during the entire time I was there. The tables resembled those found in a cafeteria and didn't have an upscale feel. I had raw oysters as a starter. Two were very small and two were very large. All good quality. I had the sirloin and 1/2 lobster tail as the main plate (they had a promotion for $25) and the beef was cooked as requested (very rare) and the lobster tail was fresh. I was just sort of disappointed in the wait staff. Even though the place was empty, I felt they didn't care."

  • "Ate here for the 1st time. The food was excellent, and the service was superb. I will definately return. I sent a text to a friend after leaving the restaurant and recommended they eat there. I also loved the adult ambience"

  • "Great spot for Sunday brunch. The salmon was grilled - medium - just as requested. They have a brunch special on mimosas. The service was prompt, but there was no hovering. Not my first time here, nor my last."

  • "The ambiance is always delightful and the service is 5 star. I was not wowed by the lobster and I don’t think this is the chefs specialty. It was the first time I order this and it was not a tasty as all the other foods that are chefs specials on the menu. Next time I will stick with what I know."

  • "Best lobster I ever had, a generous portion and the steak sauce was amazing! Ahi tuna with coconut rice great too. I would I back just for the crab and corn chowder though!"

  • "This place is small, but the food and service were both good. The price was good, had a good time on Valentine's Day after all my preferred restaurants were booked. I will return"

  • "We visited Seafood Unlimited in the middle of a snow storm, and we were fortunate to have a seat by the window where we could watch the snow fall. This first visit was a very nice experience. We thoroughly enjoyed a comfortable dining room, excellent service and a delicious dinner, all at a reasonable price. We look forward to exploring more of the menu entrees in the future, and hope that others give Seafood Unlimited a try....."

  • "This restaurant is very small. You're practically sitting with the couple next to you. However, the food was very good and the atomosphere was nice. Our waiter was very helpful with making food and drink choices."

  • "Good food. Good ambiance. Would recommend and go back."

  • "Service was great. The place is small but its cute inside. The food was good but nothing to rave about. The clam chowder was delicious but I thought the crab stuffed tilapia was bland and my carrot cake was dry. I think the chef and menu have potential but flavor is missing here."

  • "I happened to try this restaurant with my family during the last day of Restaurant week. At first glance i was a little taken back by its small size. There is not a lot of seating in this store but once I was seated the staff was very nice and friendly. The meal was very good and everything that was brought out was nice and hot. Food selection was very fresh. Even the drink that was recommended by the waitress was very tasty and strong like I like it. I would defiantly return to this little gem again!!"

  • "Our request for a seating in the rear dinning room was accommodated. The food was very good. I have been SFU before and look forward to going again. Since I recommended that my friends dine here, I was pleased that everyone had positive things to say about the food."

  • "My husband and I tried Seafood Unlimited after being late to the game scheduling a Friday night reservation during restaurant week. All our regular spots were booked which was fine cause we were up for trying somewhere new. We grabbed an 8:30 reservation but went at 8:00 to grab a drink at the bar before dinner. Our table was ready when we got there and the bar didn't have any seats so we sat down. Within 5 minutes our order was taken, our wine poured and our first course served. The pace didn't stop there. We were served 4 courses in less than 45 minutes. As soon as took our last bite our food was whisked away and the next one brought. The food was average (at best) with the tenderloin being the highlight. We wouldn't return."

  • "I will certainly go back for fresh and delicious food."

  • "Great seafood choices. Nice option for restaurant week. Restaurant is tiny, and tables are very close together. Wait staff could dress a bit more professionally."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "My only hangup was the seating...Personally I believe in a thing called personal space and I don't believe this restaurant took that into consideration when setting the floor plan. The food wasn't bad, I felt the appearance of the plate was higher in quality rather than the actual tasting of the meal. I intend to return at somepoint. Perhaps it was the limited menu selection (I went during the infamous restaurant week)."
    Dined on 1/31/2014
  • "The NE Chowder was flavorful but lacking clams The fried app was very good. The main course of shrimp and steak was not good. Shrimp was dry and tasteless , the steak and demiglase was bland as well as mashed potatoes ...my partnets shrimp over past was good The pumkin Bread pudding was very good...mouse not so much"
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "I picked this restaurant for my birthday. I was pleasantly surprised by the ambience. It was cozy, warm and friendly. The food was well prepared and quite tasty. I particularly enjoyed the boullibaise. The pumpkin bread pudding was out of this world! I would enjoy a return visit."

I was impressed by the selections for restaurant week and the portions were just right. Except for the parking, my overall dining experience was good. I would visit this restaurant again."

  • "Food and Staff were excellent. We had a party of eight for a birthday dinner. Everyone got plenty of food and all entriees and appetisers were excellent. We will definitely be back."

  • "I'll keep it short, but the food was nothing more than average. The sides were bad. So much so that they actually took away from the overall experience. My swordfish was a bit overdone and dry, but would have been better without any sides. My date shared the same sentiment, and we both left under the assumption that the sides must be from a frozen package. I don't even think they seasoned the vegetables at all. How about a little butter and maybe some black pepper on your greens? I would not venture back here as there are far more tastier options all over this city."
