  • On Sunday you can get Bunch early or All You Can Eat Crab Legs Sunday Night. Monday is Lobster Night.
  • The waitstaff is great. Monday night lobster dinner is $20 can't be beat. They do have a fruit fly problem however, so check your glass of red wine before you drink it. I'd still come back regardless.
  • The food was orgasmic! Seriously!
  • Sunday is all you can eat snow crab legs!
  • DELICIOUS seafood...busy, busy place...eating at the bar is a cozy alternative :-)
  • Had the grilled Mahi. Tasty!
