Wow I asked if they had local crabs and they told me stone crab was out of season and no one has it. Wrong season ends may 15th and this year was a great season.

I can't believe they flat out lie to get you to stay... I like Alaskan crab might have tried it if they had been honest...

So happy we chose this place. Jose and Dillon were great. Lobster roll was really good, so were the Ipswich sandwich and the lobster salad.

What a warm welcome we received when we walked through this door. The singer outside was just packing up but it was not a problem that we arrived late. Although we had visited the island a number of times we had not called here. The staff were the friendliest people and helped with our ordering. Loved the Ipswich Clams which we had never had before. A great little find.

The lobster roll is divine, simply pure lobster claw and no filling with a perfectly toasted bun. Delicious!!! Great to eat outside too. Attentive staff and service. Simply a hidden gem!!!

We were surprised that this restaurant was ranked number 1 after visiting Sanibel many times so we decided to check it out. The food was fine, over priced and slow service.
I was surprised after all the great reviews. We had eaten in Boston and along the east coast many times. It was fine but not #1 on the island.
