This place is a gem. Quiet, understated, simple. The food shines, the service excellent. We had the seafood combo, Cajun fish sandwich, and fish and chips. Will visit again!

Wonderful fresh seafood and daily specials. Recommend the cioppino, very filling. Fresh bread from local bakery. Staff is very personable. Small place, always busy, but worth the wait.

A night out with the girls. Got there early enough to not be crowded. We ordered a variety of seafood dishes and enjoyed each one. The green salads came on chilled plates, a wonderful touch. Will return again.

Judging from the crowd, and some of the reviews, we thought we'd hit the jackpot. Wrong. Yes, it's a throwback decor, quite loud but interesting. So what was wrong? 1 - wine. Served in juice glass (okay, throwback, I get it) but both that we...More
