Always serving the freshest clams and oysters on the half shell. Every meal there is satisfyingly predictable with delicious food and polite, warm friendly service. We see the same smiling faces of the wait staff and management every time we go. The food is fairly priced and they go the extra mile to make you feel at home. We live... More

Old school seafood with good variety. Atmosphere needs some updating. Food was good. Attentive waitress. Pricing is reasonable. Portions were great.

I arranged for a group of seniors from our center to have lunch. Joe had called to confirm a few days prior which I was not available to follow up. My apologies. The group went and I found out that there was a hiccup with the bills (table vs individual checks). We were to have by table and not separate... More

Yummy seafood and cute sea decor. The price point is such that we keep this for date night. Nice wine list.

Tried again after several years. It will be several more if we return again. Seated and took drink order right away. Drinks reasonable Manhattan 6.50, Mocha martini $8.00 and way to much chocolate. Then told us about some of the specials. Delivered a basket of cold bread, and butter that must have been sitting in ice water. 2nd basket of... More

Some friends and I went to celebrate a birthday. My friend loved fish and this restaurant was recommended by a friend. Everything tastes so delicious, and the service was top rated. Our table ordered a variety of food, everything from crab cakes, to stuffed mushrooms, to lobster and clam chowder! Just can't wait to go back!

I love good service, and Stacey and I got it tonight. The service is principally why I upgraded this review from only two stars; the rating that they would deserve were I only commenting upon the flavor of the food. To put it bluntly, the chef needs to learn how to season fish. My cod was flavorless and Stacey's salmon... More

Great restaurant for a variety of dining experiences. We like to eat in the bar area of the restaurant and order off of the bar menu quite often as it has a good selection of dinners with smaller, but adequate portions at a very reasonable price. We also go to the early bird special with friends the few times that... More

We haven't had a bad meal yet. The seafood is fresh and the drinks are strong. They have always been very accommodating with our large family as well. Even when we didn't have reservations, the owner was able to squeeze us in. The owner is a hands on presence and obviously takes pride in his establishment. if you're looking for... More
