Food coming out was quite a bit slow, but the biscuits and salad were very fresh. Refills of shrimp came out quickly. Overall a good experience.

The food here was excellent - had lobster. Think they could expanded the menu as being from New England, some of my favorites are missing. My waiter, Heath, was the best I've seen in a long time - Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area.

Typical chain sea-food restaurant. My favorite part about coming here are always the Cheddar biscuits, which I am obsessed with. They do have great seasonal specials and good prices.
