Great portion sizes. I had the soft shelled crab, my wife had 1lb of shrimps and our friend had king crab legs. I tried the shrimps, they're excellent.

They have a cool system for ordering and serving: you choose the seafood, what type of butter, level of heat (you can go plenty hot!!) and sides/sauces. The Cajun fries are delicious.

The seafood is served in bags - this is simple and effective and keeps all that excellent juice in one place for dipping fries into!

The bud was nice and cold. Recommended if you're on the pier at Redondo! Keep an eye out, it's upstairs!

The restaurant has great ocean and sunset views and inside is decked out with nautical paraphernalia-all of which is very fitting for the location. As for the food, which is very tasty, you select which seafood, sauce and side you want and they serve it to you in a bag. Then you dig in!
A fun experience, satisfying food and friendly staff.

We love this place!!

Great place to go for shrimp and other seafood on the Redondo Pier!

Casual dining; when they seat you they cover the table with a paper sheet. A roll of paper towels on a stand is your napkins, and no wonder! You'll likely go through a lot of them.

Prices are VERY reaonable. Shrimp, clams, muscles and crab are served steamed in a steamer bag with whatever flavor of sauce you choose. (If you're sensitive to spicy, tell them you want it mild... Hot is HOT!!!)

We always order family style, with a bucket of steamed seafood and their deep fried calamari is excellent.

Our only downside so far has been a fried fish and seafood basket, that had fish and oysters in it. The oysters were fishy and didn't taste really fresh, and the fish was overcooked.

A wide selection of beers is available in the bottle, and they have some types on tap as well.

Parking can be a problem in the hot summer months, Pier parking is limited during the beach season. But this is a great place to go to the rest of the year, with a great view of the sunset over the ocean!!

Took my son there for lunch. We found the food tasty and the portions ample. Two people can easily share the fries. I had shrimp with the original seasoning. Do us the provided bibs to protect your clothes. Laughed at them classifying Blue Moon as an imported beer. Into California?
