    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.

    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.

    $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.
