Everything was delicious. Literally everything. Appetizers, mains, desserts. Unfortunately, they fisherman didn't catch any halibut that day, but the meal was still incredible. Not usually a fan of blueberry pie. This was the exception. We often still talk about our meal here. Will definitely return...More

Was visiting with my in laws who are from Ireland. Mussels were fantastic, as were the lobster rolls. Bust spot, but we were there off-season so didn’t have to wait too long for a seat. Highly recommend!

My husband had their seafood bubble and the waiter said it had been on their menu for 24 years. Absolutely delicious. I had the seafood chowder and a nice Chardonnay and it was awesome. Not cheap but worth every penny and calorie.

Hi, Bootsyjean, sorry about your experience, as you can tell by the responses below, this is not a typical experience. It must have been an off night. Hope you'll give us another try sometime.
