The place is huge and a bit noisy but drinks were ok. The mezcal drink could have a bit more mezcal but other than that service is pretty fast.

Food was great, and the staff was very attentive and friendly. I would definitely return with other friends or family. Just expect crowds! We went during off season and it was still elbow to elbow as we waited for a table. I cannot imagine what...More

The night we visited the place was packed. Went right to the bar, where friendly patrons were leaving, and took their two seats. The bartenders were so nice. The vibe was good. And the food was tasty. Definitely worth a visit.

Very good night, the decoration is wonderful and the service is great. Awesome chowder, fish soup and fish n' chips, but not a pizza place.

Went with friends. Lobster Mac and cheese looked and tasted delicious. Braised boneless ribs and mashed potatoes were outstanding. Portion sizes were enough to take doggie bag for second meals at home

I would say yes! They have a large room on the back and rooms upstairs as well. I would request the back one if they can accommodate you as it would be easier access to salad bar and people in your party won't have to take... More
