!st time visit and the whole grilled flounder was outstanding . They do offer fried seafood and steaks , prime rib ,etc. but it's tough to pass up the grilled whole flounder when they have it . Inside decor is dated and ole timey but food is excellent . Cannot wait to go again

Was not impressed. Very greasy, old and like eating in a cave. We did not see any reason to go back there.

The seafood was good but the scallops were not real. The shrimp and scallops were tough. The portions were small and the prices were high. $5.00 for a domestic bottled beer? Come on. You would think they could dust the same decorative artifacts that have been there for at least 25 years. This place used to rate 5 stars, but now I give it a 3.

This is one of the best local seafood restaurant in the area
BUT
However
When one has to wait for an hour and 20 minutes for the "daily special" which was Seabass today
One wonder if it's worth it

Husband ordered the shrimp special which has always been excellent

We had to order our drinks twice and remind the waistless why's that we had ordered our drinks

Four couples & groups that came in
After us
received their food anywhere from 20 to 40 minutes ahead of us

This is absolutely the worst we've had anywhere in the last year

The best fried calamari I have ever had so if you love fresh seafood check out Jimmy at the variety.
