Great food and service. Portions were great. I could have the crab legs everyday! Decor was kinda dated but clean.

Best fried shrimp & scallops ever. Very light batter, not heavy. Perfectly fried. Delicious. Waitress fast, friendly. Delightful. Wonderful evening. Went at busy time, Saturday night. Only waited 10 minutes for party of 4. Everyone was very happy.

I do not know the exact cost of lobster tail . Most restaurants simply list it as Market Price. I expect it would be between 25 and 45 dollars depending on the size..
