“Great Seafood”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Great seafood preparations. Had their lobster roll which was just like being back east. Also the cafe is part of the store that sells the best quality seafood around.

“Good fresh seafood”
Reviewed 25 March 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

This is one of the few places in my area that specialize in fresh seafood. they have an excellent variety and it is always the best quality. However bring your AMEX card as the pricing is very high. However, you get what you payfor!
