Need great seafood, reasonable price - Hartford County/surrounding

My SO is turning 30 tomorrow and today mentioned a seafood craving. Throwing out my original dinner plans and now I need help! Still new to the area and need a great seafood place on a moderate budget to go tomorrow. Only one I am aware of is Max's Oyster but hear so many mixed reviews here. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    Staying with the Max theme, I have had a couple great meals at Max Fish in Glastonbury.

      Max Fish is very good, there's also Saybrook Fish House in Rocky Hill which is a better value than Max Fish but not quite as good IMHO and service can be spotty at times. That being said, I prefer Saybrook Fish House because of the family style salad and wonderful creamy garlic dressing that you get with your meal.
