Hostess and waitress were helpful and nice to squeeze us in on a busy Saturday with lots of reservations. Service was good, but I felt the food and atmosphere were just so so. We all had soup or salad and seafood entrees. My 3 companions felt it was ok, but I was disappointed. My soup of the day was potato... More

This was our first visit. Although the restaurant is in serious need of some TLC, the food was surprisingly very good. My husband had the prime rib. Well seasoned, tender and delicious. My friend and I had the the stuffed shrimp. A nice crab/ cracker crumb stuffing, no imitation surami here! My friends husband had the chicken scarapelli, again a... More

If you're looking for fresh seafood locally this is the spot! Their shrimp is the freshest and crispy with amazing flavor! All of their raw bar food is great and they have a nice atmosphere!

We ate here 2 years ago, and the food was better. The seafood was OK, nothing special, about on par with a Red Lobster at somewhat higher prices.

We stopped in for a quick appetizer and some drinks and we couldn't get over the horrible smell in the restaurant. It smelt like a dirty fish boat. Needless to say, we had our bottled beer and left. Therefore, I cannot comment on the food so read others reviews for that.

Had dinner at this restaurant with some business associates while in Manchester. The service was good and the meal tasty. The atmosphere was a bit dated. Overall not a bad experience.

It's been a while since we've been here and I just don't know why, The seafood here is great. Went with friends for dinner and can honestly say everyone raved about their dinners. I had the fried oysters and they could have been the best I've ever had. Service was top notch. All in all a perfect night out with... More
