Great small restaurant in Des Plaines! Big outdoor patio area but the best is inside! Get in line (or phone ahead) for great seafood! Never had a complaint with anything we've gotten! The appetizer platters feed an army so come hungry!

Delicious seafood - very well prepared - and the portions are HUGE!

Lines are long, so ready yourself for a bit of a wait at peak times. And know what you want by the time you get to the register or you're liable to get some attitude from the surly cashier. After all, he's got to keep this spectacular seafood machine running.

Dine inside or outside. Beer and wine available. Corkage fee is 10 bucks if you bring your own wine.

Highly Recommended!

I've seen their trucks in the neighborhood, but didn't know they also had a restaurant until a few days ago. I couldn't decide between perch or walleye, so I went with the Great Lakes Combo platter which had walleye, perch, smelt and whitefish. Delicious! Definitely enough to share, and still have leftovers. Great neighborhood find! I'll be back for sure.

Some what pricey but you can definitely split any meal or take home leftovers for another meal. The garlic bread is also very good. Each meal comes with a huge serving of rice and veggies-squash, mushrooms, cauliflower and potatoes. If weather permits I suggest sitting outside, it can be crowded and noisy inside, plus the fresh seafood counter (sits right behind your table) attracts lots of flies. I had the grilled shrimp which consisted of huge shrimp that I was able to make another meal out of the next day.
