I consider this place a typical tourist restaurant. The food is nothing too exciting. It's high priced. Not a place I'd go back to.

Like the idea of fried lobster but once you have it that's all you need. Do like their salad dressing but that's about it. Prices are high for meh food. It's loud and cramped but is what is.

I honestly don't know if they take reservations. It's usually pretty busy in spite of the high prices and the fact that it's BYOB
