Wow! This is the place for local seafood. Boats coming into and out of harbor, mooring just outside of the restaurant and bringing their catch to market. Can’t get closer to the source without getting on the fishing boats. I had seafood chowder. Off the...More

If you only care about the view, good choice. It is fresh seafood as restaurant is attached to fisherman’s co-op. If you care about taste, preparation, or presentation, then there are better choices nearby. Here $14.99 gets you a make it yourself lobster roll on...More

Awesome fresh seafood. Tucked out of the way, but very popular. Reservations only for 4 or more people. So, go early or later to avoid a wait. Scenic view of bay, and inside or outside dining. Casual, good value. Have been visiting on annual trips...More

The restaurant was very accommodating for a group of 12 on short notice for our Habitat for Humanity group. The view overlooks the incoming boats at the loading dock and the tidal expansion area. Check the board for specials with good prices.

Food was just Ok, prices are good. Had scallops and they were not cooked well. Service was slow. View was nice and they have outside seating.

We just discovered this place about 3 years ago. It wasn't very busy, now there is a waiting line. The Haddock and lobster chowder are the best. Both in size and taste.

Wow! If you want extra greasy, soggy food--this is the place to go. My small piece of haddock was 1/2 cooked---the waitress said she'd tell the cook--riiiight! The scallops (only 5) were grease bombs and dripping in grease. I had onion ring--they were warm, soggy...More
