  • Best Lobster

    Been here three times and the lobster can't be beat. Unfortunately my son and I were sitting next to a table of four that were not only overly loud but very inappropriate language and ruined what would have otherwise been a wonderful dinner. My son was on a business trip and decided to surprise me and I brought him here because I know the food and service has always been great. This other table did a great job of ruining my evening and rare special time with my son. I could have said something or asked to have our table changed but I did not want to embarrass my son. It did appear that one of the folks at the other table had three to many drinks. Perhaps the waitress should have cut him off as she also seemed offended by them.

    The entrance to the restaurant gave great promise but the interior was rather blah! Lots of separate rooms. We basically sat in a hallway between two rooms. Decor was blah. Loud birthday party singing and banter passed through to the other rooms. Crab cake was just okay. Wedge salad very good. Fresh swordfish was good but nothing exciting. Prices, fortunately were reasonable. Not sure I would go back.

    Went there for their main event: lobsters. I had grilled shrimp (allergic to lobster) and they were juicy and nice size along with side choices. Everyone else was moaning and groaning over the lobsters! Really good by the way they cleaned every morsel up! Great service, place is clean and attractive, nobody rushed us. What a nice evening!

    Great prices for Maine lobsters cooked anyway you like them! Appetizers so well portioned and yummy you could easily make a meal of one or two with the fresh, warm rolls that keep on coming! Service is great, but they are eager to clear away dishes, so be firm about keeping a dish if you are not done!

    This is the place to go for lobster. The other dishes on the menu are marginal at best. The salad is mostly wilted lettuce. The service is fair but that may be because it is a busy place. If you want lobster this is the place to go.

    If you go before 6 p.m., reduced prices on lobster. Food is always good here. Husband had delicious stuffed shrimp. Service was excellent to the point that the waiters were willing to crack lobster and remove meat for patrons. Highly recommend.

  • Great Service, old Florida feel

    Dined on 10/5/2014
    This restaurant has an old Florida feel with outstanding service. Kevin was our main waiter, and he was fabulous as well as the rest of the wait staff working with him. We went on a Sunday, and it was a lot of older people that were enjoying a birthday. Clientele and waitstaff were both very pleasant. Salad dressing is homemade and excellent. My husband ordered a full lobster which he thought was good for the price (early bird). I loved the salad, mashed potatoes, bread and tomato sauce. I had the four petite lobster tails which were "OK." If you go, I would order a full lobster or ask if they have a house specialty or order one of their more traditional dishes.

    We always come here for our lobster when in the area - it's formulaic, but everything's good - including the lobster sliders, lobster bisque, salads oh and the lobsters! Vegetables are always refugees from the 1950s, but you don't come here to eat steamed broccoli. If you get there early, the lobster's a deal, but not over-priced even later. Good service, good drinks.

    The shared appetizer - steamed clams - was reeking. We should have sent it back, but instead stopped eating them. The main courses were skimpy with revolting steamed, tasteless vegetables. The noise level was fine when we were the only table in the room; however, when it filled up, we ended up screaming at each other. Overpriced and underwhelming. The only positive was that our server had the courtesy to leave the plates on the table until the last person finished her meal.

    This place has been here for years, and the ambiance looks it. Could use a face lift. Menu looked as ancient as the place is. My husband said his libster was unimpressive and overcooked. Side dish choices are a limited. Surprised that they still charge extra if you want Blue Cheese Dressing. Had to send back my Martini to be remade. Wait staff was pleasent and attentive.

    An early celebration for my son's birthday. Promised him the best lobster he ever had and did not disappoint. Requested table change and was immediately accommodated. A bit rushed service at first but the place filled up quickly and we had a leisurely decadent dinner and desert. Go directly for the lobster - 1 1/2 pound perfect size to satisfy mom and son (his 30th) and just enough room left for desert. He had the chocolate moose and I had the key lime pie. My son was visiting from DC and I promised him a great time and this was the highlight of the four days he was here. Can't wait till my other son and his fiance visit from NY. We already know where we will go for dinner.

    My wife took me here for my birthday. We have been here before and normally love it. This time around I ordered the crab meat stuffed shrimp. It could be the worst stuffed shrimp I have ever had as it was the most bland tasting shrimp I have ever had, almost as though there was not an ounce of spice on the dish. My wife had a shrimp pasta and here shrimp was extremely rubbery. That being said, the service was great as was the ambiance.
