Two of us for dinner. We each had a lobster roll-one with fries and one with chips. Delicious and plentiful. For dessert we shared a very nice piece of key lime pie that the waiter said was baked on the premises. Hot tea set off a very pleasant dinner. Not too noisy so that we could easily converse with one another. Wait staff was very pleasant. We will be back again.

Does that seem strange? If you like fish, if you like a touch of New Orleans as presented by a Mexican staff, this is your place.

Really enjoyed the grilled oysters, whitefish almondine, scallops and paella! Prices were what you'd expect for seafood in the area. Enjoy the laid back feel and appreciate that there is no fishy smell ...a very good sign that the seafood is fresh. Oh, and excellent cocktails, too.

We've been going to this seafood deli since it opened several years back next to the Mean Wiener hot dog place that's connected. It's a solid choice if you are in the mood for seafood as there are not many non-sushi seafood places nearby. That said, the quality of the food is nothing special. Other reviewers seem to like the lobster roll, although I didn't think it had nearly enough lobster meat. My favorite is the Vongole clams freshly cooked in garlic. It won't change how you think about life but it's pretty good. Prices have increased over time such that it's no longer a great value.

Food was fresh and good. Mix between fish joint and Mexican that was great after hitting the beach. 2 issues.... Top 2 beer choices were not available and computer system ( credit card) was down delaying check out. I'd avoid for kids unless the kids like fish.
