Had the most expensive dish on the menu...two maine lobsters.....had nicer ones in Minnesota at Red Lobster. Very sad, because I wanted one nice meal on the ocean....sigh. Service was fine. Neither I nor my partner were impressed with the food however.

This place is fantastic. The Clam Chowder is a Must!! I love their Fish & Chips. Prices are somewhat reasonable for the area. I highly recommend checking it out for yourself.

Delicious seafood pastas and a great place to chill after spending the morning at Alcatraz. Pricing is expected for a location like this.

Two people in my party had the clam chowder in the bread bowl and they said it was amazing. Had an issue with one of our dinners... More
