Was not disappointed at all. Ate here for the first time and it was fantastic. Went on a Saturday night at 7:00 and they told us a 45minute wait and it was almost exactly that. We waited at the bar and had a couple drinks...More

We celebrated a friend's birthday on a busy Saturday night. Waited quite a while for our table, after being told it would be "just a few minutes". If you don't want to wait in the bar, there's not much room to wait anywhere else. The...More

If you want fresh seafood, this place is nice. The service was great and the quality of food is good. We had a large group and they accommodated us well. But watch out the bread can fill you up. Best clam chowder that I have...More

Living in So. Cal I am always leery about seafood restaurants that are in land locked states. Well this one gives me hope that you can find good seafood if the management knows where to buy their provisions. We were served by Jordan and he...More

This is by far our favorite seafood restaurant in central IL! By far! We enjoyed a delicious dinner with excellent service and a nice wine selection. My favorite is the grilled giant tiger prawns, served with clarified butter and their special in-house made tarter sauce...More

A friend took us here. We had the scallops which were fabulous and a petit filet which was perfectly done. Nice wine selection and good service as well. The decor is a bit retro but nice, overall a strong recommend.
