    The clam chowder bread bowl here is to die for. The lobster chowder is worth sucking a dick for. Good atmosphere and drinks.

    Save your money. Lobster bisque has tons of shells in it, the crab cake was undercooked and hardly filled with meat, and the chowder wasn't that great either.

    Good food and good service but be careful they may tell you a cheaper price outside to reel you in then charge you a higher price inside:(

    You could bypass this place easily: not fancy, nothing special and so on. But the food was awesome and the staff very friendly. Loved the pasta with garlic sauced jumbo shrimps!

    While all the big restaurants close early, this little place stays open 'til late at night. The food is very good! I've tried the Bay Shrimp & Scallops Fettucine and loved it. Best of all: low prices.

    Grab a $6 crab sandwich and sit outside in the sun. That sandwich will taste sweeter than any crab sandwich you've ever eaten.

    Staff is not so friendly. Calamari was terrible - not fried to the correct point, turned out to be a chewing gum. Tip is a mandatory 15% and included in the check. Try the crab chowder soup - just per
