    Yes, the service can be spotty, but I'm a regular here and they treat me like a king. Get to know the (mostly) young waitresses here, they're actually good people. Ask for Skye, tell her I sent you.

    Red Lobster what? Those $3 'ritas and $5 apps after 9p means the trek ALWAYS ends here. For some reason crab filled mushrooms are always MIA. $2 Twosdays are the new draw. Budget friendly but ratchet!

    Great food, drinks, and loud, casual atmosphere. The wait staff dances. You can't replace flavors for the steam pots, but they can always make it plain. The campfire smores is like heaven.

    A waitress named Katrice did a fantastic job with us! The cook sucked, the white manager was insensitive & prejudiced, & the DJ was all over the place lol. At least my Crab Cake Caesar salad was gud!

    One of the best dining experiences in Harlem! Our waiter Bryan was a rock star: attentive, efficient and hard working. I will return again!

    Was the absolute bomb atmosphere. Def get the crab Nachos and be prepared to cut a rug between your appetizer and meal. It felt so like home.

    Went on MLK day so it wasn't that packed. Good service and decent food. But I can see how this place can get real hood really fast if it gets too crowded.

    The service is great and the atmosphere is cheerful, I can say that because I'm sitting at the bar.

    Very small portions. It was ok, I got a steamer pot w/ 3 scallops, a tiny cluster of crab legs and 5 mussels. Waste of money, I was still hungry when I left. The peach sangria is delicious though.

    It was okay, definitely like the one in Clifton better. The wait was ridiculous, the food was subpar, and who makes a bathroom with ONE stall?! Also, they advertise a coupon that's not on the website.

    Food was great. When it finally arrived! Give the place a month to smooth things out.

    My last time attending this particular location. I am very disappointed in Harlem's continuous cycle of bad customer service. The community must do better! I wish them well!

    It took about 45 minutes to be seated and about 45 mins to receive our food. The food was good, but I just wish we could have been served faster.

    Get over yourself and do the Cha-Cha Slide in the middle of your meal. I did.

    Never again. Service is so slow. An hour and a half waiting for food that wasn't even that good. They have a lot to learn from the Joe's down south. Chain restaurants in NYC are just not worth it.

    Poor service, unprofessional, disorganized ,mixed up my take-out order after waiting over 1hr. The food was OK, but nothing spectacular. Pretty generic what you'd find at any seafood place in Harlem.

    This place is the WORST! The bartender/waiter is awful and nowhere in sight. They are currently out of everything and the beer they did have and ordered was super warm!

    Service kinda sucks, maybe it depends on the server. But the taste of the food is good even though the steampot didn't steam

    Bad, slow service. The food is good... Drinks could be stronger. Don't get the moonshine ones in the mason jars... Pure juice.

    Went for my aunts birthday dinner... Unprofessional, unfriendly staff (except for the manager that was on shift Shakira) Horrible service. Mediocre food. In no rush to return. Thumbs down :(
