I'm giving this a two because the waitress was friendly. We stopped in here after reading the reviews on Yelp. What a disappointment! The clam strips were soggy and tasted like they'd come out of a box, then been microwaved - no better than I'd expect from a supermarket brand. Oysters on the half shell were the most tasteless I've... More

This is a casual place in a strip mall but the food is consistently fresh and tasty, the service is fast and friendly, and the prices are very reasonable. I come here with local clients often and everyone is always very satisfied.

Had a delightful lunch with my daughter recently and we both loved our food. I had the clam chowder and a lobster roll. My daughter had a caesar salad, fried chicken with vegetable and mashed potato. The lobster was not covered with lots of mayo and fillers, it was just delicious lobster meat. We have never been disappointed at this... More

Great lunch. Large menu with many choices. Located where Robbi's Reef used to be. Pleasant changes, family friendly.

Near perfection. Tasty with generous portions. One of the best fish restaurants in Venice. Tableware was sealed in plastic -- a definite plus. Not quite a five star experience but definitely is a high four.

Easy to miss this little gem. It is in a storefront in a mall. After golf 8 went for dinner and had a great meal, service was super. All around pleasant experience. So good that I suggested to the ladies group that we go there for lunch. 9 went and enjoyed it.

We currently visit their location on Highway 70 at least twice a month. We have never been disappointed. Service is great - food is awesome. Love their clam chowder!

Food is OK, mostly fried, prices are good, but the service is awful, tried it twice now and on both occasions the service is poor, they have enough staff and it was not that busy it's just not organised management need to do there job.

I ordered the green lagoon pasta to go for dinner. Excellent as usual! Delicious scallops and shrimp with portobello mushrooms and artichoke hearts with a creamy pesto sauce. Hit the spot! Staff is always friendly and I love this place.

Fantastic fish dinner. My wife had the red fish and I had the salmon, both were excellent. I highly recommend paying attention to the daily specials you can save a couple of bucks on each meal. Excellent service very friendly wait staff. Plenty of parking. Think about using call ahead seating to get yourself on the waitlist. It's usually pretty... More
