We went on Valentines Day. Got there at about 4:40 and only had to wait 20 min. Food is great. I had the Ultimate Feast and husband had Admirals feast. Would highly recommend them both

Very expensive place to eat. We got a gift card for Xmas so that is why we ate there. I ordered crab legs and lobster. Believe it or not, the crab legs were better. Sweetest ones i have ever had!

Clams, shrimp, scallop and fish await for this mighty dish. Don't get the cup of clam chowder soup though. Portion size is disappointing. Lunch cost $49 including tip for two so not a place I will go often!

Very attentive waitress, "Julia C." made for an enjoyable meal. Seated as soon as we arrived. Meal arrive in quick order and was warm and tasted great. The property was clean inside and out. Appeared to be a good turn over in customers indicating a popular restaurant.

We stopped to have dinner at Red Lobster. Our waitress was friendly enough, but when asked about choices of shrimp and fish, she was not very helpful, to the point of being a little rude. The more we thought about her attitude we decided that we would go across the street to Cracker Barrel to eat. The waitress should take... More
