Great Food , no only sea food but steaks , chicken you name it . The salad bars , 2 of them , one mainly sea food with all you can eat shrimp and mussels is wonderful. Plus very easy on your wallet for the quantity of food you enjoy ...staff is always A +.

The best part about this place is their salad bar. I ordered their seafood entree which is the most expensive and most disappointing. Stick to the salad bar and nothing more.

I had the Stuffed Rainbow Trout. It was filled with Shimp & Crab Meat Stuffing. It was very good and I enjoyed it very much. Once before, I had the Shrimp Parmigiana & that also was delicious. All dinners come with the Seafood and Salad Bars and they are filled with many items and could be a meal by themselves.

Had wonderful escargot & crab cakes. Alaskan king crab dinner was a huge portion & we couldn't finish it. Salad bar was fresh with many choices to please everyone.

I dined last evening with my wife and two boys. We were hungry and this place didn't disappoint. My wife had the fettuccine Alfredo, I had the Baked Scrod and my boys had the early bird steak special. My wife loved the pasta and what a huge portion, enough for three meals. My Scrod was good, but a little ammoniated.... More

Always a favorite. Chef Alan and staff consistently provide excellent service and cuisine. Freshest seafood and a great steak too! Superior veal parmigiana; best salad bar in the county including two separate tables for veggies and seafood. Very reasonable pricing.

A working dinner, they accommodated us well. Good salad bar, a cold beer (but not a great beer selection), the evening's special salmon was really good. Nice crew and they work as a team, none of that "not my table" stuff. Definitely coming back!

My husband and I took our parents to Lobster Pier for Valentine's dinner, biggest mistake ever! Lobster was rubbery, you could throw it a wall and it would bounce back. The stuff clams & stuffed shrimp were mushy. The stuff rainbow trout was nasty had to be processed meat. I was expecting 4 star meals, especial since Google has them... More

Had dinner on a very busy Saturday and the service was excellent and the restaurant appears to be very well run. The herring in cream sauce on the salad bar was practically a meal with the good Italian bread. Boiled shrimp were good but small. Lots of other choices. I recommend making a meal out of the salad bar and... More
