    Everything was bland and under-seasoned. Seafood in the Midwest... my bad.

    When they're in season, get the Louisiana Blue Crab Claws.

    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!).

    Don't let the distance from the ocean dissuade you. The seafood is fresh, the steaks are decent, and the service is great.

    Garlic rolls? It's more like 'HEY THERE IS A LOT OF DELICIOUS GARLIC ON THIS ROLL' rolls.

    If you don't like seafood, the chicken Parmesan is delicious!

    Disappointed when making a reservation having to wait for your table - the waitstaff made it worthwhile - the food was good as long as you stuck to their speciality (my sister didn't like the pasta)

    Can't go wrong with any of these: Fresh Oysters, Clam chowder, Maine Lobster, Crab meat vermicelli. Bar specials until 6pm · April 23, 2013

    Best crab ever.

    Edson T. · April 17, 2013
  • Adisak P.

    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!

    Adisak Pochanayon · April 13, 2013

    The Crabmeat Vermicelli is delicious!! So is the Mudpie!
