Restaurant is a fraud. They spread coupons for twin lobsters quoting the dish is $25. However when we came to a restaurant it appeared that there is a split fee $15!!! For nothing!!! You do not get anything extra for that.. Surely they did not...More

A bit small so best to check if you need a reservation before you go. Food is amazing. The Platter of 1 lobster, mussels steamers and 2 sides for 33.99 is by far the best deal. recommend greatly.
