We were excited to try a new seafood place. Nothing fancy, you can BYOB, or purchase wine there. Service was good. Wait staff friendly. The tilapia oreganato was recommended. It was mushy and lacked flavor. I should have sent it back. The Manhattan clam chowder was very flavorful and would have been a winner, but needed more clams and vegetables... More

The food was pretty good, We got 3 different appetizers. The one that I ordered was scallops wrapped in bacon. It was very good, but they only gave you 4 and the price for 4 was $13, which was way overpriced in my opinion. I had the scallops meal for dinner and it was very good. Everyone seemed to be...

Came here with my family about a month ago. Nice place with very good food and large portions. Service was average but it didn't ruin our meal. Prices were very fair and we will be back.

We went to the lobster house last Saturday night for the first time. The hostess was friendly and very accurate on the wait time. The we had the clam chowder to start which was hearty with lots of clam, for an app we had the fried calamari which was cooked perfect and the portion was enough for 4 people easily.... More

Fell short of expectations. Food was poorer quality than "Recent Reviews" suggested. Thought we would find good quality moderate priced seafood; not our experience. The New England chowder was poor with rubber like clams, poor consistency & taste. Service was slow even though the restaurant was not crowded when we were seated; 1/2 hour to get our orders of crab... More

A delightful find and so worth a visit. The restaurant is in a restored historic building surrounded by a shopping center. Stopped in at lunch, but plan to go back for dinner.

Excellent fresh raw and cooked seafood. Something for everyone even if you do not love fish. My husband says the chicken parmigiana is to die for; enough food so that you can take home for tomorrow's lunch and maybe dinner. Crab cakes and pulpo salad are worth checking out as are the soft shell crabs in season!!! Am looking forward... More

This is our favorite Lobster "joint" Great food, reasonable prices, casual. The lobster is so clean there is nooooo salt taste what so ever. We make our trips around this place, as we live almost 2 hours away.

Food was Fresh and Plentiful. Restaurant was clean as were the rest rooms. The presentation was poor. The seafood was very fresh. I ordered the Seafood Medley and It was brought to the table in the pot in which it was cooked. Including a quart of water. I would eat here again because the seafood was fresh but the presentation... More

Not a big fan of sea food, attended as part of friends gathering. Decent sea food and lobster. Definitely worth visiting.
