    We had a really good time here. The food was wonderful--our group had something from most parts of the menu, and it was all just great! Friendly, efficient service and a nice view of the water.

    Seafood salad was swimming in olive oil, at least 2 strands of hair on the almost inedible seafood. My sons fries also had a piece of hair. This place can use some hygiene make over along with some much needed cleaning.

    Went for lobster night and it was amazing. 2 nice lobster tails, veg and potato, salad and dessert. Usually wine is included but there was a temp hold on alcohol. I've been numerous times but i loved lobster night. And of course i always get my raw clams, yum yum

    We were there for their Valentine's Pre-fixe. I thought the food was delicious. But their presentation was wasn't great. (one pink flyer on the table, listing the price per couple our options). I loved the stuffed lobster, my date thought the chicken with mushrooms was a little thin. But we agreed all was delicious. The lobster bisque was very salty, but I like it that way. I would go back.

    Unfortunately, the air conditioning was not working properly. At the end of our time there, someone figured out how to put the ceiling fans on. But....no establishments seem to be handling the heat wave well....

    We were here for Parents Weekend at Fordham University. I feel like we found a gem. Service was good, the food took a little while, but we weren’t in a rush. We would be regulars if we lived closer:We were treated like regulars the moment we walked in! It should be noted we were a party of 9. They only take cash, but have an atm on site.

    The food is great. However they don't have many options for sides. That isn't anything to stop me from going. It's cash only, they have an ATM for your convenience but again nothing so inconvenient it'll stop me from going again.

    Very good local restaurant. Good seafood and steaks. Chicken wings appetizer was great. Wife had shrinp scampi and I had Frutta Di Mare. Food was very good, and portions were generous. Service was attentive and friendly. Restaurant is CASH ONLY, but there is an ATM on premises for those caught unaware. Will definitely eat here again.
