GREAT Lobster Club & Fish Special (Snapper). Portions were huge and draft beer was cold. Steve the bartender was super. Hope to be back soon.

Very popular restaurant; always busy and since they take no reservations you may have to wait a few minutes. Popular with all ages. Lively, great fast service. Not expensive But the best is the fish, direct from Fisherman's Wharf next door!

Even though there were a lot of empty tables we had to wait a long time to be seated. Once the waiter came we had to ask for three different dishes before we found something they had available. Stuffed shrimp was not very good. This...More

I don't think they take reservations. Sometime there is a wait and sometimes not. It is worth the wait.

No, but if you arrive early or around 7 you get seated pretty quickly. If it’s bad weather (ok it happens once in awhile here) then it’s limited seating inside.
