Enjoyed incredibly fresh fish and a yummy side salad. Fantastic waitress who was very knowledgeable about all of the offerings on the menu. I don't think I've ever seen a fish restaurant with a more extensive menu. I highly recommend the monkfish - very different and delicious.

Had a business dinner and we sat outside under the outdoor heater. Very lively ambiance and great staff. We had oysters of different kinds and various types of seafood dinner. Delicious and great presentation. Love the "Bring Your Own Alcohol" concept. We brought bottles of wine with us. I have a sweet tooth so I always order desserts. I would... More

Great fried calamari appetizer. Ahi tuna entree was great and was a huge portion. The grilled cod entree was the best I've ever had bar none including restaurants in nyc, cape cod, and europe. Key lime pie dessert was also great. BYOB and alfresco dining available.

This is my husband's favorite restaurant in Princeton. The seafood is always fresh. If you want to go please make a reservation well in advance. It is BYOB and there are wine shops close by you can grab a bottle on the way. It is very crowded and can get noisy but the dishes are well worth it.

The overall dining experience is good. But you have to make a reservation well in advance for a Friday or Saturday night seating. It clearly demonstrates how starved Princeton is for good restaurants. That's why we don't bother to venture there anymore.

We were a party of four with a six thirty reservation on Sat night. We arrived on time and were promptly seated at a nice table along the left side wall. We shared two delicious appetizers of Grilled Calamari, and mussels in a garlic sauce. For our main course we had two portions of grilled halibut, grilled scallops, and Dover... More

We were 3 couples and everyone enjoyed their meals. We had some shared appetizers, some soups and everyone had entrees, desserts were shared by some. It is BYOB which is always a nice perk. Restaurant is right next door to its fish market so the fish couldn't have been fresher. Portions were generous. Great Manhattan crab chowder!

I'm not sure why it took me so long to get here but I'm so glad I did ! Just imagine having a menu with any type of fresh seafood or fish you ever wanted. The hardest thing about it is to have to choose! First we started off with a great local selection of scrumptious oysters. They were nicely... More

Didn't make a reservation ahead of time so we sat outside ... which wasn't so bad. Food and service were very good. We had the tortellini and linguini with white clam sauce, they were pretty tasty. Was not too crazy about the seafood and sausage paella. The apple crisp with vanilla ice cream was delicious. Hope to sit indoors on... More
