Wanted to go for the chowder but the fried seafood was even better. It was so much food I could never have eaten it all. Fun place including a train that zips around the place the whole time. Nice wait staff.

We usually go to Sea Hag but thought we'd try somewhat different. We had the crab melt which was delicious. Fries were good too. The chowder was disappointing. Service was quick. Sea Hag still has the best chowder.

This was a nice casual place with great food at a reasonable price. You could the watch whales from your table on a clear day. The staff were awesome and the service was quick. We will be back!

It was very busy when we went for lunch. There was one waitress working very, very hard but it took a long time to take our order and receive our food. It definitely was not a quick meal. The clam chowder was not our favorite-...More
