Never a bad moment in this area. Tried their new and improved lobster Mac and let me be clear when I say it was nothing short of AMAZING. They went from one type of cheese to three cheeses and as alway it’s loaded with lobster. This place gives you a good amount of seafood for the price the charge. As always I highly recommend.

A bit of a pain to find if you're not familiar with neighborhood. Street parking is a nightmare so use the garage and save yourself the stress.
Beautiful views of the city except the seating is really low so point less but the service is above and beyond excellent levels. Christian took care of us and made it a memorable experience.
The Ahi Tuna is very delicious but came out on the colder side.
The grilled Bronzino was perfect and delicious.
Definitely a good experience and will visit again

Our appetizer of clam strips tasted like they were cooked once, left out an hour then recooked. Some seemed fresh but most tasted like hard leather. The clam chowder was amazing. We shared the hanger steak which came to the table cold as if sitting out too long. Drinks were excellent. Disappointing enough not to want to go back.

Food was good but the lobster roll had so much butter the bread fell apart. Also, we went for the lobster monday deal and nowhere on website did it say it's only from 7-9pm. We were there around 5:30 pm. It was way too far for the not so great experience we had.

Food was pricey and subpar. Decent sized portions Lobster Roll was overcooked, dry. Total disappointment Fried Clams over fried and really greasy. Underwhelmed for price.

The receptionists took good care of us. My reservation was for 2 people and we ended up being 5 people, they accommodated us pretty quickly. Claudia, the waitress from Ireland, was very kind and funny to us. Like runners and busboys who spoke Spanish. The food and the view were very nice. Thanks and highly recommended!

Very long wait for happy hour oysters. Chose Buffalo cauliflower to eat in the meantime which came quickly but was disappointing. The cauliflower was raw with a spicy sauce poured over it.

It was a regular date night and wanted to try a new restaurant that was in walking distance. Seawolf was recommended to us and they did not disappoint. We got there half hour early and they still seated us, the view was beautiful being able to see the water and the city lights with the perfect sunset.
The set up was great, I like that you can see you food being made and everyone was practicing proper hygiene, the food was exceptional and the portions was great. We left there super stuffed and happy.

Came with a few friends for Lobster Tuesdays and everything we ate was so good. The view from the restaurant was amazing. The service was on point. Alex our waiter made sure we were good the entire time. Very attentive. The manager Andrew also came to check on us. I would definitely come back and highly recommend it.

The hostess asked if we were vaccinated which was TMI…. We didn’t have plans to sit inside anyway. She made us a quick table for 2 outside. Kinda felt on top of the other patrons but me and my date was vining so it wasn’t too big of deal. The view of the city is amazing !!! I ordered the lobster roll and it was amazing!! The fries were tiny and skinny lol. My date had the cod and he loved it, it was a small portion tho. We didn’t have mixed drinks so I can’t comment on the cocktails.

Really fun, beautiful spot In Williamsburg. Excellent food. Worth the trek from the city though the ferry from east 34th st is an easier transport option than the L because it’s a bit of a hike from
The train station.
