Customer Reviews

We ate here for my birthday dinner, having never been, but chose it based on reviews. We walked in and expected a totally different atmosphere. It's a dive, but I knew the reviews couldn't be wrong. We ate clam chowder, lobster bisque, Cajun shrimp and the dungeoness crab boil. Everything was amazing!! The lobster bisque was by far the best we've ever had. Service was also very attentive. We'll be back for sure!!
