Usually nothing but good things at this place. I’ll start off with Chi Chi was the best server I’ve had there by far. The food was good as usual, although I feel like the clams we ordered almost every one of the shells we had to force open. Other than that the food was definitely on point! Delivered in flavor and spot on with the amount we ordered. Now usually this place has some promotions they do (if you know you know. I don’t want the whole community knowing the secret ) when asked about the promotion they usually do I was told everyone in our party was suppose to participate. I felt this was odd given the fact that it was me my wife my three kids and my daughters friend. Me and my wife I could understand it, but having my children (13, 10, 10, 12 yrs of age) do it as well. Fishy (no pun intended. Now our bill was pretty big I could only assume it’s because they wanted every penny from that bill. Which is understandable I get it. But to me that’s a little excessive. Usually every visit Ive have the manager come by and introduce themselves and check on every customer. I always thought it was cool how they showed customer appreciation. But not this visit unfortunately. Had to ask who the manager was on duty just out of curiosity. Kenny. I like this place a lot and I hope this was just a one time thing and I caught them on an off day. But again our server was definitely on point and nice and quick! You’re lucky to have Chi Chi as your waitress!

Our first visit was better than expected. Our sever Gina was phenomenal, the food fast and delish, and the Manager Maria even stopped by to check on us during our visit. I highly recommend this place for anyone that has a taste for seafood.

couldnt wait to try this place out..what a mistake! Food was terrible, everything cooked in the same " bag" its an unpleasant experience to eat out of a bag anyhow but then your corn is so overcooked it just squirts water when bitten into, shrimp over cooked, litte to no crab meat in the legs, we were swatting flies the whole time, had to ask for crackers, and they only brought one pair told us to share. Overpriced tiny cocktails, I left hungry! Food was that bad!

My visit was actually a pleasant one. The restaurant was already packed at around 4:30 pm on a Thursday. I figured it must be good. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading a mix of favorable and unfavorable reviews. I can only say that the service was fantastic for takeout. I placed my order, and the staff were all friendly and helpful. They answered my questions about the spice level and the difference between the regular and manila clams. I didn't have to wait too long to receive my order. I was in and out within 15 minutes.

The meal was split between my mother and I. We got a dozen steamed oysters, and a make your own combo with mussels and clams. I chose the Mr. & Mrs. Crab sauce at a mild spice level. The mild was a little spicier than I normally get. It actually had a kick of heat without being overly spicy. The medium level would have been too much for me. Mom commented that she liked the seasoning but that it was too salty. I have to agree. It's the first thing that I noticed because I'm sensitive to that. There's nothing wrong with a lot of salt. Most people like that. I just can't have it very often. I'll have to go back and try the garlic butter sauce next time. Yes, there will be a next time. The oysters, clams, and mussels were a good size. The whole meal was reasonably priced for seafood. It's a very popular place.

This restaurant opened in Brandon several months ago and my wife and I as well as another couple decided we would go there so that we could try another seafood restaurant in the area. The food was in a word TERRIBLE. I had fried oysters and the wife had some kind of fish. Neither one of us could finish the meal it was so bad. My wife has said to me several times since we ate there that she should have sent the meal back because it was so bad. None of us have been back since the initial visit and we will not be going back.
