I have to say I like reading the reviews for this establishment. I can say without a doubt this is the finest restaurant I have been proud to visit in the area. My friend and I eat lunch there almost weekly. The bartender Paul is fantastic not only serving drinks but waiting on us at the bar. Believe me we... More

We hadn't been to this independently owned restaurant for several years. We returned for a family birthday gathering recently and had a wonderful lunch with the best bread, clams casino, Manhattan clam chowder and lobster roll I have ever had. The place has a wonderful sea-like décor with aqua accents. It is clean and well-lit. The staff is very friendly... More

Decided to order the Cioppino which was recommended by the waiter. Plenty of seafood in the bowl. Would have liked a bit more seasoning. Good service but a bit pricey.

Ok This place is awesome. Been working in Albany for a few weeks now (several months to go on this project) and I can't believe I waited this long to try this place. Ordered a glass of Bourbon to sip while I decided what to eat. They have a well stocked bar with a nice selection of Bourbon. I started... More

My dinner with a friend who knows her wine and seafood was a real delight. My salmon was perfect, her dish was exactly what she expected, and all the service was equally professional,polite and timely. Their live fish tanks are beautiful and spotless. This was my second visit and it was just as satisfying as the first.

Went here for dinner with a friend and every item we had was wonderful. Everything was fresh and prepared to our order. I had the lobster risotto and this was one of the best dishes I have ever eaten.

I wanted to get there early before the dinner crowd. It was 4 pm, not busy but half the restaurant was reserved so I was informed that there was a 15 minute wait. Ended up being only a 5 minute wait. Fresh seafood was good, service was good, a very nice restaurant in a good location.

I ordered the Shellfish Cobb salad to-go. The staff was friendly and helpful. My salad was very large, which was a relief for $23. It had a good amount of crab and lobster and two large shrimp. The salad and the dressing were delicious and filling.

We had not been here in quite some time. Wife found a coupon in the Clipper Magazine, and off we went. The coupon makes the dinner prices more palatable. Wife's Lobster Risotto had a very nice tail in it along with nice pieces of claw. Flavorful and plentiful. Enough for leftovers. My salmon with mashed potatoes and slaw was nicely... More
