A kitchen fire closed this place. I will miss the fabulous menu, but won’t miss the mediocre service. The business has been sold to another local restaurant. I look forward to see what they bring to the table.

Noisy loud but the food is worth it. The sad thing now is that it is closed. Hear the owner is looking at a new site and hopefully it will be open next summer 2018.

I was invited by friends to meet them at Shipps. It was a little difficult to find, but well worth the effort. The food was fantastic, both the main entre and the appetizers. The prices were good with excellent portions and the service was fantastic....More

Not sure about scallops. We were there in January so perhaps the menu has changed for Spring or Summer. Great place to eat (outdoors.) Noisy inside.
