We came for my son’s birthday and we were not disappointed. This was our second time here. The food and service were excellent as they had been at our previous visit. We will definitely be returning.

Order a Lobster Roll but felt like I was having a tuna salad with lettuce and tomato. I’ve had many lobster rolls at different restaurants, but never had one served in this manner. There was more lettuce and tomato then there was lobster. Would not recommend.

The food and drinks were good. We will definitely be returning. The crab cakes were fresh and the sauce was very good. Reasonable prices for a good meal when other restaurants are trying to nickel and dime you for less than par food.

This is the second time we went back there but this time was with our children too. They were unexpectedly busy given it is Tuesday night. We had to wait a bit before trying to get noticed. Our waiter came by quickly afterward and is very friendly, hard working and very attentive. The special is definitely to go for and worth it. We always go for Cajun spicy sauce. This time we tried fried calamari and steamed oysters, they were really good!! (except for couple pieces of steamed oysters were somehow way too salty). The strawberry mango margarita is a must during happy hour. I wish they did take Opentable Reward Card since it shows as eligible on the app. Other than that, everything is good.

Wednesday night visit - very quiet with only a few patrons. Ambient music was at a very agreeable level to allow for easy conversation. Once again great food, dinner for 2 with 2 drinks was @$80- and we were stuffed.

The food was excellent and our waitress was amazing. They do use too much plastic. Other than that I can't wait to go back.

Great food and service! They had a special that was such a great deal! Shrimp, crab legs and lobster for $35. Regular price that would have been over $50.

A really great dining experience. The food was excellent and plentiful. The waitstaff was welcoming and helpful. Great value as everything was reasonably priced for the amount of food you got. Very good wines.
I can't say enough good things about this place. It's a big space and I can't wait for indoor dining restrictions to be safely lifted because I think it will be the kind of place with great crowd energy when we're all back to normal.

A very good spot. Casual environment, ambiance score really doesn’t apply when you’re going to wear a bib and eat with your hands. Fried appetizers were average but shrimp cocktail was large tender shrimp and main courses
were very good and generous portions. Drinks were tasty and service was excellent, they’re a fun, friendly and very attentive staff. The tab wasn’t cheap but competitively priced for this type of seafood bag. Convenient location with available parking. I’ll definitely go again.
