They were yummy! Then we ordered the steamer for 2 where there were mussels, clams, shrimps, crab legs, corns, broccoli... More

I was expecting snow crab, but never asked much questions. Prices were average for seafood in the area. Not very crowded but locals liked the food as well.

Decided to try this place one night having found a coupon for it and while we left full, we probably won't be going back. The food is decent but there are better options.

From the outside the place does not look like much of anything. We went with a local person who knows the area and has been there before. Inside there were choices of being in the sports bar with various TVs going with NFL games or a more quiet area without TV. The food was well prepared, generous and tasty. Our... More
