In all fairness - I did not actually eat the food here. But I did go here to eat so I feel it's ok for me to share my opinion on the place. They state pretty clearly on their menu and on a big sign...More

We had high expectations because just about everyone on the North Shore recommended Romy's for shrimp. We waited in line for about 30 minutes only to be told that it would be another 45 minutes if we wanted the Scampi. We were very hungry so...More
