This place was really good a few months ago. It took us an hour to get our food which was cold. The waitress has an "it's not my fault attitude". Sad to see a nice little place fail

Small fresh fish market and restaurant, with the freshest seafood around these parts. Lobster rolls, crabcakes, etc. Market has good variety of locally caught fish as well as fresh fish from "up north."
