Was there yesterday. Had some martinis and an order of clam strips. I wish I had taken a picture, Just clams no fries and the plate was huge. I couldn't finish them. Reasonable prices also

I have to say, this restaurant experience was a bit of a surprise. I have heard for years, from family and friends, how much they liked this restaurant. I went with my two sisters and it proved to be an interesting experience. First of all the menu was filled with selections, quite a few, which had no price associated with them - just "market price".. That seemed very odd. Never been to a seafood restaurant with that many undisclosed prices. We ordered and I received a perfectly baked potato and some delightful vegetables, which accompanied a large portion of very dry and tough lemon sole. One sister ordered he fried clam strips and that was perfectly prepared: non greasy clam strips with crisp and tasty fries. My other sister ordered the swordfish and did not finish it. So, it was a very bizarre dining experience. I think the thing to here is focus on what they do well: burgers and fried seafood. As for me, I will return to two other seafood restaurants that seem consistently good.

I have ordered the clam strips multiple times and they were tasty and not greasy as I have encountered in other restaurants.The burgers are good size and juicy. I would not order a steak or ribs as this is a seafood place. I enjoyed dining on the deck. The only downfall of eating outside is they allow smoking out there. I did not enjoy having smoke blowing towards me while I was trying to eat. They should have a smoking area in the parking lot away from people dining.

Nice casual, fun atmosphere. Service was good. All or at least most seafood dishes were "market price". I can understand lobster and maybe scallops but even the lemon baked scrod was market price. I ended up getting that -15 change - kind of dry. Not sure if I would return. If I did I would try something else.
