If you're looking for some no nonsense seafood in a casual atmosphere, this is the place. Kind of small, but you don't need much room to tackle some shellfish. My SO and I both had the monthly special, which included an appetizer, 1 lb of crab legs, and a desert. Very reasonably priced. Service was a bit over the top, but I think they are trying to turn the tables. Probably wouldn't recommend for large groups, but perfect for a date night or double date.

This place has been around forever and keeps getting better. They currently have 3 course meals that are a great value. I had a 6 piece shrimp cocktail a pound of snow crab and dessert for $36. Also not to be missed is the jumbo king crab. Mai tai is the signature drink and they have a great selection of beers on tap. Key lime pie is the perfect ending. Service is professional and friendly.

Aside from being informed by Open Table that I had not attended my reservation (in the middle of my dinner IN the restaurant) everything was very pleasant. Our server was great! Food was slightly over priced, but good nonetheless. We were seated next to a table with a child who was being kept occupied by an iPad at full volume. It sounded like an arcade. Parents were oblivious - so this is a very kid friendly place! Bring all your kids here!

I was disappointed that they didn't have steamed clams, but I get it. I think I'm the only person who likes them, as mussels are probably more popular.

We had a crab cake appetizer that was good and I had the Valentine's Day special of salmon and crab cake, with clam chowder. The salmon was very average, but the crab cake and chowder were good. My sister-in-law enjoyed her shrimp, but my brother's mahi mahi was tough and he sent it back for the swordfish, which came out quickly and was acceptable. The server was attentive without being overbearing. Overall, a perfectly fine place for comfort food.

I cannot give an accurate rating because we never got a chance to eat. We had a reservation for 8:15. Arrived a little early.
We waited about 40 minutes and finally decided to leave.
We were told at least twice before leaving that the wait was a little longer.
The food looked like it may have tasted good but unfortunately I can’t say so for sure.

I booked a reservation 3 weeks in advance for 4 at 7pm. We arrived at 6:45pm and didn’t get seated until 7:45pm. The restaurant needs to have a better reservation management system.

Overall, the food and service was good.

We had a reservation but still had to wait a half hour to get seated and even then at the bar because there are no tables available.

The food was not worth the price. Had king crab legs but all i got are skinny prickly legs that barely had meat in them. I’m sure i would’ve gotten better king crab legs for the same price at a different place.
