    Very nice seafood. Good service!

    Grilled halibut was super tasty, and super pricey. We did have great service for a large crowd. I'd definitely return, but only if I can expense it.

    The view and service are the best things about this place. Love the Sinatra music and old school vibe. The crab roll sandwich was weak for $18. The crab sandwiches sold outside were bigger and 8.25.

    I reccomend the chowder in bread bowl, it's really amazing. The view of the window is very nice and include the fisherman's boats as you can see at the picture.

    The food was good and the bread was awesome. The server was very personable but inattentive. Never checked on refills, very slow at every step. The bathrooms were a disaster. Overall, disappointed

    Don't Eat here! Very bad experience. We overheard the waiter say that he was too busy to bring us our food or ask how things were. Very Disappointed! :(

    The dude at the entrance to the restaurant will try and trick you to go upstairs for a view of the bay....even if you want to eat outside. Ask for the waterside cafe. That's outside.

    If you call 15 minutes ahead and make a reservation you can bypass the hour and a half wait time.
