a BIG thumbs up for this Sheepshead Bay/Emmons Avenue institution. Friendly, informal,all the ambience of McDonalds but great foodat good prices. Their red sauce, which I hadon calmari and mussels-- the best sauce Ihave ever had. I asked if they bottle it andsell it but no luck. The fried soft shell crab:wonderful. Will hafta wait for a future visitto try steamers, crab cakes, scungili, lobster,fried oysters. Wish they had some more freshfish dishes on the menu and a good bouilliabasewould be great. Their chowder is respectable.The lemony/fishy smell of the place ismemorable. No credit cards but an ATMis on the premises.

    Did you ask for their red sauce mild, medium or hot?
    The 'medium' is great but the 'hot' is superb.
    I haven't been there in a couple of years but I do
    remember how great Randazzo's calamari was.
    Their soft shell crab was also wonderful.
    I've never had bad food there. Once I even found a
    large pearl in one of my oysters on the half shell.
