Love this place. Great happy hour options. Delicious menu. The tuna was excellent and everything that accompanied it was delicious. They serve complimentary mini chocolate mousse after your meal. A nice treat to finish off a great meal.

So glad we found this place! Amazing happy hour oysters, fish tacos and drinks. Staff were friendly and accommodating to our toddler, and the food was fresh and delicious. Would go again, and have recommended to our friends and family also.

Three of us had dinner here on a busy Wednesday night. Between us, we ordered the calamari salad, clam chowder (NE style), salmon, skate, and lobster roll. With the exception of the lobster roll, all of our food was served hot and delicious. The lobster...More
