Service
 
"Butter, cream and deep-fried batter rule the menu" at this "reasonably priced" Canton Square tavern offering "large portions" of "guilty-pleasure seafood" , plus an "amazing" oyster selection and "freshly squeezed orange crush" ; it's "popular (read noisy and crowded)" , but the service is "timely" , and there are plenty of places to perch among the "pictures and artifacts from the city's past" – at the "lively bar downstairs" or "cozy tables upstairs" – or on the sidewalk in the summer.

The seafood was amazing! It has a charm of an old bar like being at Cheers. We had the scallops as appetizers and the seafood soup. Then moved onto the Crab Cakes and Blackened Salmon sandwich! Everything was delicious along coupled with a good selection of drinks and great service!

My family opted for Christmas dinner out this year. So we pick Mama's On The Half Shell, as we love seafood, the menu looked good and we had never been before (always looking for the experience). This was a wonderful choice. The environment was warm. The service was great. The food was phenomenal!!!

Good food. A little expensive. Definitely going here if you like oysters and clams. Not a big selection but food was good.
