We end up here every couple of years and always wonder why it's not more often -- this was reinforced on Friday night.
The service is quick and friendly.
The menu and specials are appealing and reasonably priced.
The room is a bit dated, the lighting isn't great, and it's surprisingly loud, however, --
We loved our calamari appetizer, even with the hot peppers being deep-fried along with the squid.
The sauteed soft shell crabs were fresh, huge and delicious.
The grilled Mediterrean sea bass was fresh, properly-cooked, and flavorful.
This is the place for basic, fresh seafood, properly-cooked, and reasonably-priced. Assuming it's consistent, we'll be back more regularly and bring some out of town guests who might otherwise end up at Legal (which is fine, by the way) or Summer Shack (which is not fine relative to value, especially -- see recent posts below), and when East Coast Grill is too packed or too upscale for the crowd.
