The seafood salads were disappointing.. Watery greens and just basically bland, nothing interesting or different about either of our salads.

Sports bar atmosphere. Our waitress Draya was excellent and very knowledgeable of the menu from the bar and restaurant! We had 3 pound bucket with medium garlic spices seasoning and just loved it! They have a wide assortment of food item so even if you are not a fish eater you will find something to satisfy your hunger. Go there!... More

This place is a nice, neighborhood spot. As such, it has kinda funky atmosphere, with a giant mechanical shark hanging in the middle (Go sharks!) They have a small, nice bar and have many tv screens to watch your favorite sports, yet they are easy to ignore if you're not into what's on.They also always have at least one screen... More

Our first visit so we went with the 5lb bucket with the mild sharky sauce. The sauce was good and had a kick. We were happy we got the mild. The bag included Alaskan & Dungeness crab, mussels, clams, shrimps, sausage, corn, potatoes. It was tasty, messy and not enough for 4 hungry people. The service was good, helpful and... More

I grew up in Massachusetts, I now live in California, and I love seafood. You can do just about anything to it, and I love it. I will sit in the sandiest places on the beach, whipped by the wind to eat good seafood. This is a bustling place, lots of TVs, lots of distractions, super hard benches (why, restaurants,... More

We went for the first time on a stormy Friday night and the place was packed. I figured that was a great sign. The staff was very friendly and the food actually came out quite fast considering how packed it was. The drinks seemed a bit watered down though. Sometimes it can be tough to review food...it's so subjective. It... More

The place is large inside, look and feel of a sports bar. Wait staff young but courteous. Menu a little confusing, the specials don't explain what is included. My wife had the black mussels and deep fried batter mushrooms. Mussels we plump and juicy with lots of butter and garlic. Good, but could have been warmer, not sure mussels and... More

Lobster bisque soup, fettucine with diablo shrimp, salmon and sausage and louis salad with a side of hushpuppies. Service was friendly and fast. Food was not more than mediocre. We didn't finish our lunches. The soup didn't have any lobster in it, was a very odd color, and tasted of at best fish broth with cocktail sauce mixed together. Didn't... More

Went with the husband and returned a couple of other times with friends. Very casual sport bar type of environment. If you get their specialty you will get a bucket of shell food you'll need to crack yourself, corn & potatoes. It is messy but that is the point. Be sure to get a side of their garlic bread with...

I have visited about three times and have not been disappointed. I tried the lobster bisque soup, fish and chips, oysters, and bucket of shellfish. All were delicious. Seats are a bit hard, but the atmosphere is comfortable.
