    The food is good but the tables are too close together. Feels like we can't help hearing everyone's conversation. Annoying

    Not a huge fan of chain restaurants but this one works. Excellent food; fresh shellfish. Sometimes a bit crowded but never rushed.

    Where I first decided I liked New England Clam Chowder. Ever since I have gotten a bowl of it whenever I come back!

    Chairs are breaking and food is mediocre at best.. Too bad.

    Amazing food, but not meant for large groups. If you like fresh, simple seafood...then this is your spot.

    I don't eat seafood so options were limited, but steak was disappointingly tasteless. Wife had muscles which she said were nice but they brought out main before she'd finished, and shrimp were poor.

    Consistently the best oysters I've had, and I've had a lot of oysters.

    $1 oyster happy hour at the bar is the best. Look for Chris M behind the bar. Makes a mean martini.

    If the Thai Calamari appetizer is being featured try it. It's delicious and enough to be shared by 3 people.

    Order the crab cake lunch special just before they switch over to the dinner menu and be amazed when your meal comes out as quickly as ordering a Big Mac at McDonalds.

    Katie D. is crazy. This is real seafood, I know it's a chain... It may be $5 more per entree than some crap lime red lobster, but that is ALL FROZEN! also the waitstaff is great.
