"We saw the need for a casual place where people could watch the game over a plate of crab legs, gather with friends to unwind or just come in and enjoy good seafood at a great value," co-owner Amy Amaradio said. "We've been excited to see the tremendous response from the Laguna Beach community and local 'regulars' — it really helps us build the neighborhood feel that we are going for. As the weather starts shifting toward summer, we're planning to see lots of new faces."
