Our server, Joyce, was really top notch and super friendly. She knew the menu and specials well. The appetizers and entrees were expertly prepared. I had twin tail lobsters which were grilled just right. My husband had the rainbow trout stuffed with crab. He was thrilled with the flavor of the fish as well as the generous portion of crab...

The salad bar is fresh. Food is very good, they also serve brown butter with the seafood upon request! It can be hard to get a reservation last minute.

This small restaurant serves consistently excellent food with great service. The food and service more than make up for the tight space and lack of ambiance. The food is prepared right out in the open where you can watch. If you like seafood, don't miss it. Their francais sauce is as good as it gets. A simple fresh salad bar... More

The crabcakes were good - very expensive, but good. I must say that we were there to compare it to Youell's and it came up short. The prices were similar, but the variety of traditional old fashioned seafood was limited. Could not find the "fried seafood platter", which I remember when I was young - which you can still find...

And intimate spot in the west end of Allentown. This is a great place to go for a quiet seafood dinner. The food is fantastic.
