I would not recommend this place. I don't know how they have 4 stars on Facebook. First of all, when you enter, there is a long staircase with a disgusting looking carpet (not a good first impression). The seating area is small, and the paint is chipped from the walls. Also, I'm not sure if they don't have heaters, or... More

Haven't been this chap for a long time, slightly change of manuel, lay out the same. Food lays on table, like those in Seattle. They put pasta underneath the seafood which absorbs all the juices, very yummy seafood pasta. Twenty dollars something person, but not bad choice.

I went with a bunch of us went to eat this and they all got the $25.99 crap bucket. The crab is really good and they have a ton to see if he for 2599 but I think since you have to you have to people in order to eat it so it essentially it is $50 but still worth... More

Ok I must say that I was not very impressed when I first walked in the restaurant. It was like a family house turned into a restaurant. However, the servers were very warm and attentive. We ordered and everything was changed in my mind. I finally realized that this is a relaxing and cozy restaurant just like home where I... More

What a funny little place! It's a little quirky of a building and they had country music playing in the background which I found very unusual but charming. We weren't sure how this was going to go but we loved it! We ordered the Combo B for 2 people and it was lots of food for a good price. Our... More

The seafood is very good as they make fresh clams, mussels, calamari, shrimp, corn, pasta and potatoes. I have gone here about a half dozen times. But during my latest outing I made reservations for six and asked to make sure that there would be Spot Prawns. They assured me that they would have Spot Prawns. When I ordered it,... More

Team Tastic came here for a Sunday noon lunch and we ordered a Combo A (~$15 per person). This comes with a bread roll starter but the main attraction is the seafood. The table gets lined with some sterile wax paper and out comes a bowl of hot prawns, penne, corn, mussels, potato, and sausage. If a hot mess is... More

We went for the 1st time with a Social Shopper coupon, so our meal was fixed, with choices of 2 sides and 2 sauces, included 4 soft drinks. We made reservations for 7:30 and upon arriving our table was not ready and we were asked to wait, the restaurant was full, which is always a good sign. Once seated we... More

The family loves seafood and this place delivers! It's a roll up your sleeves and be prepared to get your hands messy kind of place with a relaxed atmosphere and most of all, good food.
