The Zagat Review
“Steamy pots of mussels” are served with “exotic sauces” and “crusty bread” at these “fast-moving” seafood specialists also touted for their “standout” donuts and “won’t-break-the-bank” tabs; not much decor and “noisy” , “highly social” scenes come with the territory.

Incredible seafood restaurant, they had a lobster mac and cheese special that was amazing. A little light on the lobster, but heavy on the creamy cheese. They keep you loaded up on bread so don't be afraid to ask for more. The mussel bowls are awesome and if you find it confusing they're more than happy to answer any questions. Seating was a little tight, but we went early at 5:30 and it was fairly open and not too loud.

Food: I have come here many times for brunch and once for happy hour. By far they have the best appetizers for brunch including the bagel donuts, cheese fries, and avocado toast with a poached egg. The baked egg dish is a good healthy entree if you are in the mood for Italian. The lobster roll is a good sized portion, but I would not say it is the best entree they offer for brunch. Definitely get the coffee, it comes with a cute creamer/sugar holder combo with sugar cubes and sprinkles. Happy hour is the best deal as far as taste and price. The $1 oysters are delicious and pair well with the beer that is also on the HH menu. I have even gotten their oysters for breakfast and I do not regret it. Service: If you go for brunch when they first open at 11:30, you will get great service, but the last time I went a little later around 12:30, and even though it wasn't that busy, the waiter was frazzled and was forgetting other peoples' orders around us. Note: this was also a different waiter than we usually would get, so maybe it was just her. During happy hour, the service is still great. Overall, Flex Mussels deserves 5 stars for delicious food. Hope this review helps if it is your first time going here.

A terrific restaurant to try all different types of dishes with mussels. Their mussels are always fresh and their dishes are innovative with good flavors. Although the restaurant is narrow and small, it works well and has great service. The staff is always friendly and informative of the best dishes of the day.
