This is my restaurant of choice when it comes to good seafood. Great choices, fresh ingredients and fantastic taste. All at affordable prices. Team is great too, always careful to provide the best service. Highly recommended!

Here from out of town, I wanted to try a local place. I'm not sure I chose well. I had the perch piccata, which unfortunately had a cream based sauce rather than the expected lemon and capers. My wife had the crab cakes, which were thinner and more full of breading than expected. These dishes each cost about $20, which... More

We were a group of 4 adults & 1 - 5yr. old. Great service from Tracy. Menu has a great variety, including coconut... More

Was in Auburn Hills to shop and looked for a decent seafood restaurant. Not bad! Decent drinks, oysters, flounder...enjoyable. Service was good, too. Worth a try.

Met friends before a concert. Had drinks at the bar. Good poor, warm atmosphere. Ordered several appetizers and everything was delicious, served fast and hot! We will come again when we have more time to order dinner.

We come here about 10 times each year. I can not get enough of their wonderful pan fried perch. Always want a few more pieces, but oh well. The cole slaw is the best too. I have had both lobster and king crab legs over the years. The price of them always leads back to my favorite perch dinner. Usually... More

Went to O'Brien's the other evening with two of my girlfriends and we had a fabulous time! I had the snow crabs which were yummy, and I am sure I will try something new next time. The seafood is fresh, delicious and very well priced! Cozy, warm and welcoming atmosphere. There was a wait, as they had a full house... More
