This restaurant has really good seafood. It is usually very busy with an upbeat atmosphere. You will really like it.

The King Crab was delicious. Wednesday night it is on Special and you get a large serving of Crab legs with corn and potatoes for $25. Well worth it. My husband however ordered the combination fish and chips and it was awful. It was very...More

With all due respect to the person who filed a negative report in March, 2015, this place has been closed since the summer of 2014. It was one of my favorite places to go for happy hour and I was traumatized by its closure. Big...More

Not fresh, overly spiced to hide the taste of not fresh! Desserts prepared off site, way too expensive. Terrible service! Better seafood if you look for it!

Terrible service, even though the place was empty. Relatively high prices for low quality food. Typical chain restaurant experience, although the location is a historic spot in the desert--one of Sinatra's old stomping grounds.

Nice spot to grab happy hour. It probably won't get you full so it's best to have it as a snack 2 hrs before going somewhere for dinner. We tried the oysters, shrimp cocktails and fried calamari. All were great.

Seriously: 4 out of 5 stars? They must hire people to write good reviews. I think people who go at night have a better experience than perhaps lunchers do. At lunch, the restaurant is dingy and dark, and the 80's called and want their decor...More
