It is a very family friendly place. We had ages from 2 to 60'ish. We all have what we love... SEAFOOD!!! very fresh and affordable.

Loved the atmosphere and I didn’t get that “rush” feeling event the place was full and people waiting. The staff was very nice. I would for sure repeat the visit during my next trip to so-cal.

We like to go here with the whole family. It seems to bring us together. Digging our hands into the same bag of seafood and just having fun huffing out the heat in our mouths! I lije tge shrimps the most. The other seafood s are hard to take apart. Just make sure you don't go here on a first date!

Thank sun p

I went here with a friend and my husband. When we walked in, all you see are walls of graffiti (signatures, etc.) and my husband was already ready to head the door. I convinced him that they had good ratings so we all headed inside. We order 1 lb. shrimp and 1 lb. crawfish spicy and cajun fries. I'm not a big fan of spicy, but I ate it and the sauce was really good, nice and thick and coated everything really well. Even my husband who is not a fan of seafood was taken by surprise. If I had the opportunity I would come again. I wish they had more places like this on the East Coast in Connecticut.
