We've been to a lot of... More

The service was nice, there was 15 of us in attendance and our waitress was very attentive, right on point, knew the menu where we could change items if we could with nice recommendations. The food was good too. It was Lobsterfest time, not sure if that made a difference.

Amazing offer of seafood that I didn't know what to eat first. The dishes are big and filling. I would recommend that anyone comes here. The only thing which I didn't like was the key lime pie.

Due to the restaurant's popularity, there is always a reasonable wait; however, it gives us an opportunity to meet and observe people. Once we were seated, due to the crowd, it took a while for us to get the delicious bread. We enjoyed it when it arrived. Though our visist was long, due to the crowd, we enjoyed our entrees....
