Only open on Fridays now but Lobsters are still incredible! Good drinks and fresh seafood! Fried seafood is also excellent, Red chowder and clam cakes are the best around!

Excellent lobster ravioli with a killer sauce. Very tasty humus served with foccacia bread as the table bread. 3 pound steamed lobster was truly 3 pounds and cooked perfectly. Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday but worth the effort finding it!

If you don't want to travel toff the city, this is a great neighborhood restaurant specializing in seafood. Menu is just right with enough selections but not overwhelming. Food is well prepared and service is swift and friendly. Recommended.
