If you want fresh seafood and lots of it this is the place to come. Do not expect much atmosphere it is in an old garage with a tire repair shop next door, but the food more than makes up for the "casual" dining experience....More

This is a solid fish fry but eating there can be a bit uncomfortable - it was hot in the dining room, and outside eating is area dirty and unkept. It's a great place for take-out. We had the lobster roll which was solid. French...More

Now I like this place. the food is good and a good value. It's local seafood, but there's no lobster. The decor is sort of a mixture of your neighborhood garage and picnic tables. It's a good place for a very casual date, if your...More

We stopped here because reviews were good. Service was a bit slow but the food was worth it. Clams were excellent. Scallops too. Fish and chips very good. No fishy or oily taste. Will come back

I've been here twice in 3 days. The clams were good..better the second time because they seemed a little smaller. The chowder was OK...needed to be thicker..it is chowder not soup. The hand cut onion rings were good too.

Was very disappointed today with the fish burger special, got a tiny tiny piece of fish on a stale lumpy and squished bun with brown lettuce, it was awful no wonder you get two for $2.50. I am very disappointed with the meal as the...More
