My friends and I stopped here on a whim after leaving a friend's before heading back to Manhattan. We sat in the back garden which was a really nice environment with picnic tables, plants, and even an Elvis Movie playing on the back wall. The waitresses were so friendly, ours sat down with us at our table to discuss the menu. We ended up going for a variety of apps all which were very fresh. The peel and eat shrimp was cooked well and had a nice amount of old bay on it. The oysters were fresh, and the steamers plentiful, but our favorite was the conch ceviche which had a really bright lime and cilantro flavor. I would definitely go back.

The same cramped quarters, mediocre food, lousy service and value as the misfire in Manhattan. Don't believe the hype -- the average lobster shack anywhere in N.E. beats these places to a pulp and costs half as much.

My husband and I went here on Friday night- We both ordered the lobster rolls and they were delicious! Plump pieces of lobster and nice french fries. The waiter was very attentive and the place was cozy. We will be back!

I was dragged to this restaurant maybe around a year ago and was not at all impressed. This weekend, I went again for lunch. I had the lobster roll (with fries) and the Trout BLT (with onion rings). OBSERVATIONS: The waitress was awesome and totally knew the food and described it with precision. I was impressed that she did not just try to make every dish sound great. The lobster roll was very good, not incredible, but very good. I had it about a year The fries that it came with were distinct and really really tasty. The trout BLT was absolutely awesome! It came with spicy onion rings that were also out of this world. I'm going back today, let's hope it's just as good.

My BF and I weren't planning to come here last Saturday. But when the restaurant we wanted to go to in the Slope was booked until 9:30, we stumbled across this place. I got the bouillabaisse on our server's recommendation and it was amazing possibly the best I've had. The servers were all really friendly and nice. We'll definitely go back.

We stopped here on a Friday night while in Park Slope after reading the menu on the window. We were seated, the waitress stopped, but said she would be back. She was....10 minutes later. The wine by the glass was marginal, but the price was not. We ordered 3 dishes and 2 of the three were bad. My son's fish tacos were so dry he couldn't eat them. My husband's risotto was poor. I don't know how you can make poor risotto! My trout was adequate. When they came to clear our plates, no one asked it the food was okay or why so much was left. They just took it and dumped it. The noise level was so high that we could not carry on a normal conversation. I felt that my $100-plus was wasted. There must be better options in Park Slope. I wish I had read these reviews first.

As someone who grew up in New England and now lives in Carroll Gardens, not only was i glad to hear this place opened up, but that magazine reviews had praised it... Alas, i don't know what's worse, paying $33 for a tiny Hamptons-style lobster roll, or the idiots these magazines hire to review restaurants. Granted, you're not going to get the quality of fried clams that you get at Flow's in Newport, RI, or the overfilled $18 lobsterolls in Maine, but there's gotta be a happy medium right? Not here. The 8 fried clams were all cornmeal and the $33 lobster roll was all mayonaise Would someone PLEASE open a New England seafood restaurant that actually knows how to do seafood? PLEASE?
