Was surprised how inexpensive this place was for fresh oysters, clams and shrimp. Dinning room or bar area. Service was excellent at the bar. The place is clean .

Off the beaten path in an older tavern but worth a visit if you enjoy seafood. Not fancy by any means but great seafood at low prices. Oysters, steamers, crab soup and clam chowder were all very good. Service was efficient and friendly.
