Stopped in while our granddaughter was visiting American Girl Doll Place with her uncle. Great seafood chowder and the grilled fish of the day was awesome.

Had dinner here for about 50 people. Very friendly, courteous staff. Great seafood chowder, excellent sea bass, and delicious key lime pie. Looks out over the Rockefeller Plaza ice rink. Highly recommend.

We stopped in after a business meeting and found the place to be a good spot. We had made reservations and was seated by the bar. We will have to try dinner next time.
