Went for my wife's"free" birthday lunch. Always fun, she had the coconut shrimp, which is excellent. I had the sauteed soft shelled crab. Both were very good, as was our waitress, Veronique.

Eight of us celebrated our decades of friendship with dinner at this wonderful pub restaurant a block from the Jersey Shore. The menu was nothing short of extensive and the pricing was not expensive as we arrived ahead of 6 PM for the Early Evening Specials. We all enjoyed the clam chowder and salads to begin and then were pleasantly surprised by the clams/shrimp and mussels linguini, fried fish & ships, baked scrod and grilled steak.
Each dinner was super and we all recommend everything ! Oh, and the apple crisp dessert was a fave too.

We had quite a long wait on a Saturday evening for a party of 8 but it was definitely worth it. We ended up with a vast variety of appetizers (crab dip and calamari) and entrées (crab legs, seafood combination, steak, bisque) and all were wonderful. Our waitress was just phenomenal she was on top of everything...would definitely go back again.

There were 11 people in our party. The wait staff is friendly and competent. Some of us have food allergies and we were confident our orders were prepared with that in mind. The food is average, however, the freshly prepared fish is excellent. The place is noisy and always crowded. We were celebrating a birthday and almost everyone joined in a chorus of happy.birthday.
