  • Lobster rolls are a must!
  • Come for brunch and get the chilled crab legs, oysters, spicy tuna maki, bacon, eggs benedict, mini crab cakes, steamed king crab legs, waffles, and a key lime tort... In that order.
  • Love everything I ate. Crab cakes to die for.
  • Dinner here was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had, anywhere. Food, atmosphere and service are phenomenal.
  • Standouts include flavorful sushi and sashimi combinations, Georgia soft shell crab, and the Alaskan king crab. Come on Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday to listen to live music as you enjoy your meal
  • Get the shrimp cocktail, served on a mountain of ice. The portions are huge here and the food is high quality. We'll definitely be back (with reservations next time).
  • The crab legs are amazing!
  • Get the crab!
  • The grouper is excellent. Comes with squash that is very good as well. I will definitely come back here!

  • Sit a the Bar with Mauricio and Martin!! They'll take good care of you!!

  • Have a pometini - you won't be sorry, you will thank me.
  • Chilled mussels and lobster roll.

  • I had a dozen oysters and only seven worked.
