    Brought the wrong item, took forever to replace it, when it came out it was cold, so is the replacement, they were indifferent and unhelpful. Do not recommend.

    Definitely get the crab cakes and fried calamari. Both are huge. If you like sweet drinks, try their orange crushes as well. It's refreshing!

    Friday night looks like a "scene" at the bar downstairs. But if you choose to stay for dinner you will be gob smacked with the quality. Best crab cakes I've ever had!

    The salmon club with apple-wood smoked bacon is my go to here. Try an oyster shooter if you're feeling adventurous, an orange crush if you just want to drink something yummy.

    Appetizers are huge! Beer mussels are the bomb. They have really strict rules about pulling up chairs though so it's hard to have people join your party.

    Fried oyster platter is excellent. Make sure to use the unnamed hot sauce in the glass bottle… Mama's is the best seafood spot in Canton, and probably Baltimore.
