"I took my wife here for Valentine’s Day and we were very happy with our meal. It is sort of in an oddl location on the corner right next to a highway and large rotary. It was a little difficult to get to from the opposite side of the street, but once we figured it out it was easy.
We had the special Lobster that is Jasper Whites specialty. The ""pan roasted lobster"". It was great. Very heavy and rich, but so worth it. The cornbread that came with the meal was good and our desert was a toll house pie. That was worth the trip to the restaurant!!! Don’t miss that one!"
Good service and good food except the kids menu. Great service. It's nice here. Great waitress! Impeccable service. Personable and impressive. Thanks for a great night. Michelle rocks.
Some of the best food I've eaten in my 70 years on this planet. Big John was a great server! Mark was a terrific lad and divine! We love this place! Mark was a great server. Helpful. Knowledgable, and nice.
The people who work there are super cool and don’t mind taking the time to answer any questions I may have, such as explaining the fish board or whatever. Vinny the bartender is awesome! He always makes super cool drinks for me.
About as unpretentious as it is possible to get (think paper table cloths) with great oysters, lobster and fish. Try the swordfish skewers for lunch. Mmm, swordfishtastic. And there's free corn bread! It's been 5 nears now, and I never tire of coming
I've only been twice, but each time was a really good time. The first time I went was when I was just starting really explore seafood. I had a swordfish special that was served with marinated tomatoes and squash. Mmmmmm.... The second time was for a graduation party that was in the bar area, so it was private. All you can eat raw bar. Doesn't get any better than that. I like the casual atmosphere. Its a nice change from the typical Legal Seafood/Atlantic Fish Co. scene.
This is a good place. The specials are good, the fruit tart is delicious with ice cream if you like. The lobstah roll is good and you can have it with drawn butter like a Red's. Pretty good.
I love it here. The beer on tap tasted fresh, the atmosphere was very nice and quite a shift in the right direction from the norm. The food I've had has been delicious every time. Waitstaff always did a great job every visit, and it's very convenient to points west with easy parking. Can't find anything wrong with this establishment. This is the next best thing to having a real clambake on the beach!
Watermelon margy – If it is in the Summer try their fresh watermelon margaritas. The pulverized fruit really makes the drink refreshing. My mom loves their fried oysters. They have a grilled sardine appetizer in the Summer that my dad just goes ga ga over. Something for everyone. Their specials have always been good picks. The cornbread that comes with the meal is also good. My son had a soft-serve ice cream cone at the end of the meal that was larger than his face. His eyes grew really big when it came to the table.
Lobsta – Knowing what to get is the thing here. For me and my guy itz 2 3lb lobsters with a bucket of steamers to start, a few beers and we're outta there $120 lighter but a whole lot happier.
