    Awesome flavor and such well cooked food. I got the grilled swordfish and shrimp with wasabi cream and sautéed green beans and an arugula walnut salad on the side. SO satisfied.

    There's a kickass card magician behind the bar Fridays 5:30-8 pm. He will BLOW YOUR MIND. He does unbelievable stuff.

    The clam chowder is great! And the specialty cocktails are refreshing. If you ordered a burger at a seafood restaurant, well then you're doing it wrong. Be sure to check this place out!

    If you're in Boston you have to try a "Legal" restaurant - and this joint has some of the best seafood salads. It's a legit meal in itself!

    Get the steak tips they are amazing and if it's warm make sure to sit outside. Also a good place for a business meeting, they let you relax and talk. The food is scrumcious! Oh and order the calamari!

    Pretty good food; I had the LTK paella. Service was sub-par. They clearly don't assign tables & it was a guess who our waitress was. Then we never saw ours. It took over an hour to get our food.
