Just a great place to dine. Nothing fancy. Plastic table cloths it may have, but there's nothing plastic about the food. I had the signature dish, which was the Italian Seafood Platter. Absolutely fantastic, and a huge portion that I couldn't finish. My wife had the scallop scampi and likewise couldn't finish it. We passed on dessert!!

I would go back to this authentic American eatery in an instant. Great service too from our server Rita, who was delightful

Just a little off the beaten path, and quieter than the sports bars. We had seafood dishes that were outstanding, But a little pricey. Service was fast and pleasant. We would return which is the ultimate test and compliment.

The twin tails were on special so we ordered them and were not disappointed. The atmosphere is a little retro, the service very friendly. Prices reasonable, but we did not have the fried foods nor the Italian specialties.

This restaurant could be better if it was managed correctly. I've never seen a hostess that should not have been a hostess. She created confusion that did not need to be. Wait staff just kept walking by, when they could have helped the situation if they just mentioned "someone will be with you" We waited as did several other parties for almost 5 minutes before the hostess came to take our names. There several empty tables in clear view.
Our waitress was terrific. Their were four of us and three of us ordered the Lobster casserole and it was great, but $30? Way over priced. One ordered surf and turf with steak and salmon, loved the salmon - steak was not cooked as ordered and again was not worth the $$$$.
For the money they are charging - they need to be on top of their game or lower your prices.

Been here many times. Always great. The seafood is so fresh and crisp. The Italian is the way it should be, not overpowered by spices. Very good prices. Very friendly staff, never too busy to chat. Owners will come out and chat as well. If you get there before 6, the early bird prices are unbelievably low for the quantities they serve you. The best clam chowder and homemade rings too. Breads homemade and delicious.
