    This place is overpriced and has gone down hill. Use to be the best place for seafood but everything was good. Now the food is very average and not worth the wait.

    This place was amazing. Great beer selection. Gigantic seafood menu. You can eat till you're full, and more with a menu like that.

    Try the fried shrimp or the salmon. One of my favorite seafood places. Also the steaks (one of the largest steakhouses in Chicago, despite seafood acclaim!).

    If you like your steak rare, ask for this secret not-on-the-menu item: Filet Mignon, Eye Of Polynesian Style. It's beef sashimi lightly peppered and seared drizzled with oyster sauce. Great Appetizer!
