I ordered New England Clam Chowder and the Grouper with Crusted pistacchio. It was very good.

My husband had the calamari which he loved, however, he order the Salmon which was on special and had it grilled. He said it was very bland.

Other than that we enjoyed the visit.

My friend and I both had Dover sole. The taste was good however, it tasted fishy and not a compact texture. There were few bones that I had eaten and my friend as well. I’ve had this before but don’t know what happened this time. Otherwise, the place had a beautiful ambience and the staff were attentive.

We were very disappointed with our meal. Being it was a holiday, we didn't want to complain. My lobster bisque soup came out barely warmed and minimal lobster. The oyster sampler would have been better if the sauce was on the side, giving you the option to use as much as you'd like. The steak special was nothing special at all. The linguine with clam sauce was average. The service was mediocre - we do understand many restaurants are short staffed. For a NY eve "special occasion" dinner, it was far from worth the cost.

Our second visit was as good as the first. I was very happy to see they still had the Sesame Ahi Tuna on the menu. Service was OUTSTANDING!! We arrived early but the hostess had no problem, she took us to our table without hesitation. Our server and busboys were very attentive but not intrusive. Food quality and taste was better than most other restaurants in their price level. Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. We will definitely return.

The food was delicious, excellently prepared and creative. The drinks were perfectly executed. It was our second visit and we were just as thrilled this time with the entire experience. Our only complaint if you can call it that, we would have appreciated the server telling us their espresso machine was not working when she gave us the dessert and coffee menu, we were looking forward to a cappuccino with dessert however we really enjoyed our meal. The restaurant acoustics are loud so just keep that in mind in terms of conversation for multiple people.

My meal was not good and This made me sad. I absolutely love the Shipwreak Grill and It was our wedding anniversary. I think all restaurants are struggling to find help. The manager Mary was very understanding. She went above and beyond. I’ll definitely go back after the Holidays.

This is unequivocally a 5-Star experience...the room (and bar) is electric, the service first rate and oh, oh the kitchen completely nailed everything we ate! Calamari, perfectly crispy (no tentacles?!) with jalapeno, a lobster bisque that legitimately is a signature dish, lobster risotto and pistachio-crusted grouper all perfect bite after perfect bite.Love this place!
