I forgot, about this restaurant for a while. Really didn't remember eating here for some time. Then a friend of mine said lets get some sea food, I remembered.

Went for the fish fry on weds and was filled up with the first plate. Great staff and menu was enough to make you come back every night for something new but There is a real need for some upgrading in many areas

First off, the menu is heavy on batter fried entrees, so if that is not on your diet, then this place may not offer the largest selection of items (there are some baked entrees). We had fried scallops and fried clam strips. Both entrees had...More
