- The Alaskan King Crab is worth every penny. The rich and flavorful crab is bright red and loaded with excellence. – Bite and Booze
- Being from the Northwest, I'm used to great Halibut and this definitely delivered. The fish was moist and fresh as fresh can be, with a piping hot battered crunch. – Colleen W., Yelp, 9/23/10
