Casual crustacean-inspired chain serves up diet-defying seafood dishes in a family-friendly environment.. In Short Live lobsters wriggle in a tank inside this seafood emporium, where nautical-patterned booths and colorful, fish-shaped tables in the bar area add subdued touches of whimsy to the room's classy dark wood accents. The menu can be downright decadent, with starters of artichoke lobster dip, seafood fondue, and crab-stuffed mushrooms. Entrees feature lighter, grilled fare like mahi-mahi and North Atlantic sea scallops, along with signature lobster dishes, snow crab legs, and jumbo fried shrimp platters.
Amid a Sea of Chain Restaurants.
If you are familiar with the Polaris area of Columbus you probably know what you are getting into. It is densly populated by chain restaurants like TGI Friday's, Applebee's, Olive Garden and of course Red Lobster. As such, the atmosphere, food, price and service are all exactly what you would expect, which is exactly what they hope. Decent food, and even some food that non seafood eaters will enjoy. One complaint is the beer selection is awful. Why do the menus say "local favorite" when they don't have any?
