    Lobster bisque soup was loaded with salt. What a disappointment......Furniture is old and uncomfortable 😣

    They got a dine in and a street outlet. The food tastes great and big portions. Great to take away while your walking around.

    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!
  • Patricia L.
    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.

    Be careful with the lobster bisque and the Neptune salad found many shells and bones, I understand to a point, there shouldn't be that many

    Don't eat here. Just don't. I got sick eating 1/3 of the oyster po-boy after we made the mandatory Fisherman's Wharf stop while on business for one of the people who have never been to SF...

    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
