We came here with a party of 7 without a reservation and we hardly waited any time. We did have to divide our party into two tables but the waiter and staff were extremely accommodating. Will definitely go again.

Best clam chowder ever!!!!! All food excellent and I am particular as to where I eat. Extremely busy since the food is so good and excellent prices. I would recommend going for an early dinner .. maybe about 4pm

Wouldn't come out of my way to get here but it's decent food. Limited beer list. They do have pretty good chowder though.
