Went when my parents were in town for happy hour. Awesome prices for happy hour! My parents went every day! When we joined them we had a good time as well.

We arrived at 6:15 and got right in. 15 minutes later there was a thirty minute wait. Costs a little more than nearby restaurants, but not quantities. They have a nice selection of fresh fish prepared several different ways. You have to use the free valet parking service.

A much better option than Rudees which is right next door -- great view and friendly staff. I love their early bird specials which are a great value- salad, entree and dessert for 14.99. Check their website and things can change. At the bar --- specials on beer and oysters rockerfellers -- yummy. You can't go won with this place... More

This was a repeat visit since our last bad server experience a few years ago. They recovered completely and made a great impression. We started off with calamari which was good but not the best we've ever had. The next course was a whole lot better and even memorable. She-crab soup was terrific but very rich and spicy. No complaints... More

Good service, but generally uncomfortable seating. 4-stars for the authentic crab cake, all meat no fillers - on the small size; 2.5-stars for the Clams Casino, while boasted to be the best here - not the traditional Casino I'm used to with bacon, and over baked; the She-crab soup was good with enough crab but had a flavor/spice I could...
