    Food was good. I didn't know this was more of a bar restaurant; therefore, I would suggest it for more of a lunch spot than dinner. Service was great - the high tops are a fun place to eat close to the bar.

    We arrived and we're seated at 9pm as that was our reservation time. Received our first drink at 9:21. We had a polite server but slow at getting to us. We would have spent more but slow service didn't allow us to. The restaurant was not crowded and closed at 10.

    I mean…my meal started with a Bloody Mary that was smiling at me. I absolutely loved that! The food and drinks were excellent overall! We ordered the lobster bisque which was so rich and delicious. We also ordered some sushi and it was so fresh tasting and perfect. We also had the ahi tuna entree and it was cooked to perfection. The sides that came with it were very good as well. I had the key lime pie for dessert and it was the perfect way to round out the meal. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing. She was very kind and friendly. She made great suggestions. We will be back!

    Thanks Luke for making my b-day so “lobsterlicious” and not skimping on the lobster meat or portion size—the restaurant slogan should be “go big or go home” because there’s so much bang for the buck compared to other seafood restaurants I’ve visited, which is why “you’re the greatest”!

    The food and drinks were good. I know that the prices for everything have sky rocketed, but I think it’s kinda ridiculous to pay $25-$28 for a sandwich and have to pay another $5 for a side of fries, because it comes with a side of nothing. Throw some fries or coleslaw on the side for that price.

    The lobster roll was phenomenal. The risotto wasn't that spectacular but we had a really good night out. The server was a bit busy but very friendly. It took a while to be greeted and served.

    Nice very extensive menu. We shared Calamari and a Sushi Special to start followed by Mahi Mahi and Lobster roll tacos. Finished off with Creme Brule and Key Lime Pie. All excellent. The wait staff were personable, efficient and funny. Good to see also there were plenty of small good value plates available too. Great experience overall.

    Excellent everything, not our first time. We love the excellent food and excellent service. However, we’ve requested and received outdoor dining each time, which for us has everything to do with the overall experience. It’s VERY loud inside-you'd need to yell for the person next to you to hear you. I don’t think we would choose to come in winter because of this, unless at an off peak time and not crowded. It’s not the patrons or the staff-it’s the architecture that has the sound literally booming at uncomfortable decibels.

    We came from Cleveland for my wifes birthday. We ordered Filet Mignon and it came out raw, sent it back, came back basically the same. Didnt bother sending it back again. Lobster bisque was good though.

    First let me start off by saying that Anthony was a good server but outside of that my fish and chips were medium warm and one of the pieces of fish look like it wasn’t done and then my husband got salmon which was burnt and they brought it out anyway by that time we had all finished most of our food and then they brought him one piece of salmon didn’t even bring a fresh salad and that wasn’t done in the middle due to the fact that I have my kids and my grandparents with me I did not want to cause a scene of any type we usually like coming here but the last two times we’ve been there it’s been kind of Bad I don’t know if I could recommend this place at this point in time I would love a refund for our food.

    The restaurant appeared to be short staffed but continued to seat new tables, meaning no one was getting great service. After waiting over an hour, I had to leave before my food arrived. The server was apologetic and adjusted the tab, which was very nice, but it was still a bad time.
