Great place, our 1st time there and it won't be our last. Waitress 'Deena' was excellent and fun to deal with. We also met owner 'Sara' who was very gracious and came to our table several times to chat and laugh with us. The food speaks for itself.... off the charts good at a reasonable price. If you like clams have the steamers in wine & garlic sauce....yum. As for the other dishes? EVERYTHING was fresh & delicious.

Appetizers were tasty but main courses were overcooked and dry. There was a snapper special which, when it arrived, didn't resemble any snapper I had even eaten. They have diversified their menu over the years. Maybe they should go back to Fish at 30 Lake and do a better job on the seafood.

Great time Bob our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The clam chowder was excellent and gluten-free. My wife and I both enjoyed seafood entrées. They were nicely prepared with just right amount of spice and great flavor they also came out hot to our table . I felt the restaurant was a little too bright jamming the lights would’ve helped quite a bit. I would definitely return

The service was a bit slow took a while to take drink order and appetizer order, but the waiter was very friendly and explained the specials and answered the substitution question I had asked.
The tables were spaced appropriately and everyone wore masks. The only issue I had was our table was right by the entry way and it was extremely cold when doors opened and closed to outside. I would suggest not using that table at all. The meals were fabulous . The Tuna Nachos were excellent a bit more tuna chunks would be appreciative. The Shrimp and grits were excellent the manchengo cheese grits were very creamy and of course could always use more then 5 shrimp in the dish. The Madeira dish was substituted with salmon and it was fabulous although the next tine I would ask to cook the salmon right with the dish, or at least have the salmon presented within the food dish instead of separate on the side.

Everyone’s food was delicious! Our waiter was professional and friendly but seemed to have more than his share of tables, as getting a drink initially took a while. Felt safe and not rushed to enjoy our group meal (6 people) Kind of surprised by our bar bill - cocktails seemed expensive. Overall a great spot.

Four different types of oysters from the shores of Massachusetts to Prince Edward Island---so fresh we could taste their subtle differences as we enjoyed them on the half shell with their special sauces on ice. Scallops and lobster were equally fresh, so perfectly cooked that their natural sweetness was pronounced. My Crème brûlée was memorable.

We visited for Valentine’s Day and has a phenomenal experience. We were seated at a nice table and had plenty of distance between us and the tables around us. The staff were all following proper protocols and our server (Kate) was outstanding. The ambiance was very nice and made for a perfect setting for a romantic dinner. We started with appetizers. I had oysters and my wife had clam chowder. For entrees, I had swordfish and she had the filet. Both meals were delicious though the filet was not the best cut of meat we’ve ever had. For dessert, I had the bread pudding with a glass of port and she had the creme brûlée. All in all, a fantastic meal and a tremendous evening. Would definitely visit again!

We arrived and were seated but waited nearly 20 mins before we were approached by a server. Service in general was not great - server was not attentive.

I ordered the filet @ $39 dollars and it was sooo tough...like a $10 steak! I never send food back but I did this time. They offered and I accepted another dish. By the time it arrived, eveyone else was done with their dinner. They never even offered a drink or dessert or anything for the issue. And frankly, a manager should have come over at some point just to touch base with us... It's what good restaurants to do.

It’s not about the money, it’s more about the principle. Dinner was over $300 and considering everything, I will unlikely return (& we’ve dined here many times in the past). NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE!
