    Mussels are nice, come here to try oysters!

    The Anna's Boston Baked Schrod was delicious. Pro tip: swap one of your sides for a salad (that will come out before) as there's only a slight up-charge for doing so.

    Happy hour 4-7!

    Try the wood grilled scallops with the lemon butter sauce!

    Definitely try the tuna sashimi. To add a little kick ask for a side of graded (green paste) wasabi!

    You WILL NOT get a deal at restaurant week any year (same price if you order off the menu), it's the same every year. The food is really good. The mussels selection is good and they are all great.

    Spicy fish and chips is an excellent choice but substitute Cole Slaw for seaweed salad

    Nick Shiers · August 16, 2014

    The oysters and the fried claims

    AWESOME restaurant for gluten sensitive people! Bread and a whole menu! Fried fish was great! It had been years since I had gotten to eat fried calamari--this was just as good as I remember!

    Abby · March 17, 2014

    Grab a seat at the bar and have a chowder. Delicious dinner on the cheap.

    Add a little lemon juice and green tabasco to your tuna slider... you won't regret it.

    Rethink the bar policy of not taking to-go orders. You missed out on 2 sure drinks + tip I would have had while I waited. #fail

    The Sriracha popcorn shrimp is literally kettle corn (popcorn) and pieces of fried shrimp with 2 dipping sauces.

    The wait says was very friendly. The food was disappointing. The steak tasted metallic and and bitter, the shrimp was way overcooked and the scallops and mashed potatoes has no flavor. Yummy fries.

    ShannonRenee Mouton Gray · December 23, 2012
  • David P.

    GO FOR THE CRAB CAKES! I'm really fussy, they normally taste like bad salmon patties. The waitress talked me into them and they are amazing, best I have ever tasted!

    David Packham · September 10, 2012
  • Jeff S.

    Great red sangria and clam chowder. A favorite to hit when in DC.

    Jeff Stefancic · July 10, 2012
  • Karen K.

    Not very good! They need to clear table before bringing entree. Food mediocre. New England clams, not even close! Don't waste your $.

    Unbelievable. LS just discontinued ALL sliders. The salmon and tuna were best, and they all were only available at happy hour.

    David Rives · February 20, 2012

    The salmon and tuna happy hour sliders are unbelievably seasoned. The tuna burger from the full menu is excellent also.
