Baked scallops were tasty and waitress was quick and efficient. Nice for a quick dinner of seafood. Small older building with tough parking.

Went there twice for lunch. Very good food and very quaint building. Loved the clams and the fish with chips. Staff was attentive.

Our hotel listed this restaurant as #1 in the area. Don't believe the hype. Several in our party got fried items like calimara, fried shrimp and lobster fingers. Each left an aftertaste, worse than most fried foods. We had steamed clams, which apparently weren't in season A couple people got whole steamed lobsters, which were very good, and my lazy... More

Very friendly place with excellent food. We started with clam chowder ( creamy and tasty with plenty of real clams) and crabcakes. For our entree we shared baked haddock with sea scallops. Atmosphere is 50's retro, reminds me of places by the shore in RI. We shall return.

I have eaten here many times. The interior is best described as quaint. The seafood is good at a moderate cost. What makes this place shine is the wait staff. It is hard to imagine friendlier and more efficient waitresses.
