The outdoor seating is great. The food is good. I ordered crab cakes and quite some time later, the waitress came to tell me they were out of them. It would have been nice to know sooner. Other than that...I would recommend going there.

Arrived and welcomed with a smile from the hostess. Our server Niko boys very hospitable, courteous, and unintrusive. I ordered the snow crab bucket which was enormous with hush puppies, corn on the cob, and boiled potatoes. I have a pretty good appetite and I could not finish it all.

My date had stuffed lobster tail and she says it was wonderful. We were very fortunate the sun was shining and the sunset over the river just made it for an awesome evening.

Brought out of town guests for dinner. The food was outstanding and my sister-in-law said the Alaskan crab cakes were the best she's ever had.

Great location with a beautiful view, but disappointing food and very inattentive wait staff. We ended up taking out check to the hostess to pay as we had an appointment to get to and could not get anyone's attention.

We were there for Mothers Day with a group that was seated outside. Everything was nice but our waitress seemed a little overwhelmed. It took a very long time to place our order. Maybe she was new. There didn’t seem to be anyone helping her out. She was very sweet though and we were very patient. We felt that the portions were a bit small for the price especially since there is no bread or salads. But everything tasted very good though.

Went for Mother's Day, which was our third visit to the restaurant. Sat outside, weather only so/so. When asked (along with others) to have weather shutters put down because of cold and rain, was told manager wouldn't allow it. Food obviously got cold quickly. Husband had salmon, with mashed potatoes and asparagus. 5 asparagus spears, cold mashed potatoes, small piece of salmon. Asked for butter for asparagus was told it was cooked with butter so didn't need any. Other 2 in party had steak salad - steak cooked as requested. Will go again, but definitely not on a holiday. Was not impressed with service.

Our meal was good but as a vegetarian I had very limited choices! I’d appreciate some no meat choices. Sometimes we don’t come to your restaurant because there are very limited no meat choices. On this occasion I had a baked potato and broccoli.....

It was great to get together with friends for dinner, but we asked the waitress to take a picture but be careful of reflection. However, when I got my camera back, the glare was awful.

Nice menu with gr outdoor seating. Food quality a decent but found service somewhat slow. Ordered a bottle of wine off this menu and they did not have it. Think they should carry what they have on the menu!

We were greeted soon after we arrived and taken to our table . Our drinks arrived shorty thereafter.
The the waitress disappeared. 20 minutes later she returned and asked if we would like anything else. We placed our dinner order and waited, and waited.
When we were finally served our meal ,the presentation was good, and our entre’s were very well prepared. The dinner rolls however did t arrive util we had asked about them for the third time. And our water glasses were never refilled.
Good food, nice atmosphere, need to focus more on adequate service.

Our only VERY negative comment is the floor under our booth was disgusting. There were hunks of food & other food stuff. We told the hostess about it & she said she would take care of it. We were first timers there & was very disappointed with your cleanliness.
Will we go back?..not sure!

King Crab Legs were rubbery and overcooked. Lobster tails were under cooked. Over priced for bad quality food. The quality of the food has gotten worst in the last year. Will not return.
