We ordered a lobster & pasta dish and lobster roll. Quite delicious. We also had a nice waiter, but he was being trained during our service. It was a little uncomfortable having the head waitress show up to watch (maybe they could do that a little more inconspicuously, and when I'm not paying for the meal?). I like the menu, simple yet deft mix of ingredients, fair prices.

Great North Slope spot for brunch. Smallish portions but filling. The prix fixe menu is definitely a deal, though, with $12 for entree, coffee/tea and mimosa/bloody Mary. Service was competent but not intrusive. We will be back.
Get it together!

Me and my husband recently went here for a late Friday night dinner. First we ordered the oysters - which came without cocktail sauce or lemon, actually they gave us an empty cup whish apprently we were supposed to get some kind of vinegrette...we had to ask for hot sauce and the waitress acted like she didn't know you are supposed to have these items with oysters. Plus when she took our dinner order she never asked me what I wanted and when I called her back to order my main dish, again she acted like she didn't think I wanted a main dish....weird. My salmon was dry and came with nothing. Drinks were weak and very pricy. Basically walked out of there after spending $100 - still hunrgy and not even a buzz!
only go for a burger, avoid entrees

pro: great friendly service, nice sidewalk seating, yummy bitesize appetizer from the chef con: very small portion of gazpacho for the price, my halibut was ok- overcooked and lost its delicacy, and he had lobster ravioli which was terrible- for 28$ there was barely even the taste of lobster let alone a visible piece of lobster meat- with too much salt and dough. i hear the burgers are fantastic and you get a deal eating at the bar-- but my advice would be stick to the burgers... and dont venture to the appealing (on paper) entrees.
