  • A mussel-centric menu that has some great desserts as well.
  • We had the Classic and the Parma, they were good but the mussel pot is still my fav
  • The Thai mussels are fantastic as is their often changing beer list. The calamari appetizer is huge for two and to top it all off they apparently have a secret menu item of booze filled doughnuts.
  • The name, though reminiscent of a Tarzan boast, is apt: Flex Mussels forgoes European and American tradition and puts the mussel on steroids.
  • When at a restaurant with mussels in the name, it should be obvious what to order. The real prize however are the truffle fries.
  • If you love mussels, this is your place, especially when its $20 for all you can eat mussels during happy hour. We like the Fra Diavolo or The Mexican.
  • You gotta order the donuts (salted caramel or bust)
  • Go mussels. And don't forget to get flex donuts for dessert. Salted caramel donut is to die for. You're welcome.
  • Bombay is one of the best mussel dishes I've had at a seafood restaurant. If you're looking to try something new, I highly recommend. Salted caramel donuts are also a must.
  • San Daniele mussels with Chefs Creek oysters...
  • Kale salad is delish!
  • Reserve a table. Arrive early, grab the tasty Canadian brew on tap or the fruity sauv blanc. Chat up friendly staff. Order Old Bay fries with any of the 23 mussel recipes. Down the broth wholesale.
  • ahh this place is great, dont know what else to say
  • The salted caramel donuts are amAzing
  • Best mussels and oysters on ues!!! Happy hour is
  • Really enjoyed the curry broth it was so good. Satisfies my craving for Indian food while my wife can have italian.
  • Inconsistent.... A ton of shells in my meal and the sauce not nearly as good as my precious visits. Also they pour the smallest glasses of wine
  • Incredible! Only problem is the chairs. You slide right out!
  • Yummy... Go with the Thai mussels.. You won't be disappointed! They even packed the broth up for me to bring home.
  • The Parma mussels are so incredibly good. Who ever said cheese and seafood don't mix? Heavy. Will not be able to have desert. The Italiano are great as well. Service is spot on.
