"It is NEVER HOT. I've gone for the clams, lobster and crab legs."
"Other food is little overpriced but dozen wing for under $5 wasnt so bad."
"The place is very casual, practically a dive bar in its laid-back attitude."

I've been to this place several times because my Mom loves their cheap price on steamed clams. I've gone to make her happy but not anymore. She knows how much I hate this place so she doesn't ask me anymore. 1. Atmosphere: I don't mind the animals. In fact, they're kind of interesting. What I don't like is the rest of the atmosphere. It's very cafeteria like, the tables and lighting and noise...I feel like I'm in grade school at lunch, except for all the grown ups and animal heads. 2. The only thing in the whole menu that tastes OK is the shell fish, which is priced well. The problem? It is NEVER HOT. I've gone for the clams, lobster and crab legs. I've never had any served to me hot. The clams are usually warm, but everything else is served room temperature cold. And the drawn "butter" is NOT REAL BUTTER!! It's nasty and basically salt flavored grease. 3. Service: AWFUL. Especially if it's busy. Wait staff is always unhappy and rushed. They practically throw your food at you, sometimes spilling the "drawn butter" they charge extra for if you ask for more. Takes forever to get a problem corrected, if it ever even is, and forget about paying and leaving promptly. Getting your check takes forever. 4. Presentation. They use disposable plastic everything. It's so strange. All their drinks and sides, etc. are served in plastic cups and dishes...even wine!!! Wine is served in a regular plastic disposable beer cup. Strangest thing ever. 5. They don't take credit cards. Annoying, but also suspicious. 6. Drinks: WAY overpriced in comparison with the food menu. Prices of drinks are so not justified in this cafeteria like atmosphere, not to mention the presentation. I mean, seriously charging $9 for cabernet served in a plastic beer cup???? Ridiculous. ALSO, they have a rule that everyone MUST order a drink, and they charge for water!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Utterly insane. There are people that LOVE this place. I don't get why. If you like to enjoy the experience of dining out as well as trying interesting and tasty foods, this is not the place for you. It's awful. I will NEVER go here again.

You can't beat this place for steamers and lobster! This is the only inland restaurant I will order a whole lobster because you know they go through so much of it.

Nice decor but the service I'd horrible. We ordered only five things and onlyo ne person got their meal. After an hour or so we left to go to Aisan Blossom down the road. I do not recomend that you go there. I do recomend you go to Aisan Blossom down the road.

NOT HAPPY at all. No complimentary water, no credit cards, bar service took too long when I first sat down for lunch and the bar was not busy. The menu is limited and the drinks a little pricey, $9.50 +tax for LIT. Got burger and fries, the burger was not too bad but the fries were cold and tasteless. As somebody else said very weird place. Huge with animal mountings all over the place. tries to call itself a sports bar but nowhere near and for a place this huge you think you would have better variety and take credit cards. I don't know about anybody else but a place turns me off and I usually won't go back if they can't even give me water. I pay $9.50 for a drink and a can't get a glass of water with it?? This isn't some luncheonette or stand off the road so why wouldn't they take credit cards.

Get there early. Love the taxidermy. Chicken in a basket is the best bargain for your money. Four small pieces of golden fried chicken, onion rings and fries. Delicious. The steamed clams with melted butter were fresh and very good. The lobster was delicious. No tap water. $2.50 for a bottle of water, ridiculous. I do have the say that the waitresses are quite stupid and unfriendly. All in all, I can't wait to return for the clams and steak.

Restaurant was better before the fire. Went there on a Saturday night recently. Slow service and lobster was served ICE COLD! Waitress took it back and replaced it with a luke warm lobster which quickly turned ice cold again. Also steamed clams were served dried out. Lobster must be served HOT! ALso, they served a bad tasting melted butter blend. Real lobster needs real butter! Will not go again.

The whole draw is the lobster and clams ---- ok price for seafood --- other than that I don't know why anyone would ever go to this place.....did you know they will charge you, if you ask for extra butter? I would give this place 5/5 stars for tackiness, if such a category existed.
