Stopped in for lunch and enjoyed a crab cake sandwich and a blackened fish taco which was really good. Restaurant was extremely busy but service was still good.

2nd visit. Lobster bisque soup was great. Jumbo Shrimp was great. You must try the lobster cobb salad. It is one of the best we ever had. It was filling and many succulent lobster pieces filling the salad bowl. The downside is the Connecticut lobster...More

You cannot make a reservation here on Friday or Saturday night. On those nights, its a consistent 40-60 minute wait. In fact, while you are waiting, people are rudely shoving their way past in the entrance area. It's like being on the metro during rush...More

I had the lobster roll and sweet potato fries, but was less than impressed. The meal was overpriced and left me unsatisfied.

Although the menu is limited, The sea food is excellent. They have several great appetizers. We love their mussels in particular. The atmosphere is casual but real nice. Service is very good. Because of that, we go there regularly.

I've been to the Ashburn location and we enjoy that place very much but we decided to try the newer South Riding shop. It is in a strip mall near the Home Depot and parking is a bit challenging. It is quite popular and crowded...More
