We showed up with 13 people and as it was 1pm, we got right in. This was our first, but not last visit here. Food was good and prices were reasonable. But be advised that it is "cash only ".

We had a large group of more than 20 people. We had made prior arrangements with the restaurant , so they knew we were coming. Everyone was pleased with their dinner. People raved about the clams, my grouper was great and my husband loved the shrimp. Would definitely return when in the area!

Great place for locals as well as taking your company out for a... More

We are all from New England, Massachusetts and New Hampshire. My grandma absolutely loves this place. We had 3 first timers including myself. The wait was not bad but the place was PACKED! About 20 mins and our table of 6 got seated. We ordered steemers, muscles, lobster rolls, macaroni and cheese. Everything was amazing!!! They only serve bottled beer... More
