Fresh seafood, drab dining room.

If you want good food, decent service and reasonable prices then this is the place. However, if you're looking for a scenic view of the lake, outdoor dining or modern decor, then look some place else. I had the perch lunch and it was very good. My sister had the clams and she raved about them... read more

The fish market is behind the restaurant (drive around the corner to W 5th St) and has a wonderful selection of fresh fish. My wife and I particularly love the Lake Erie (Yellow) Perch. The friendly folks in the fish market have a lightly breaded perch which they will fry for you. Be sure to add some fresh cole slaw... More

It was really good! The waitress was very friendly! Don't miss the house salad with the mango vinegrette dressing! Broiled would be a great option instead of fried?

Wanted seafood and went on a recommendation. A lot of the entrees are fried and it was somewhat difficult finding something not fried to eat. We were served fairly promptly and our friendly server was great with suggestions. Prices are very reasonable. The dining room is decorated in a nautical theme.

Pleasantly surprised with this delightful spot. I knew it was going to be an experience when we walked in and saw a table of clowns. (Clowning for a hospice..nice). Anyway, I read on a review about the coleslaw being delicious....and boy they weren't kidding. Enjoyed scrod and some tasty hot and fresh rolls. $10 for a fabulous fresh meal. Very... More

We had fried perch. It was the best perch we've had. It tasted very fresh. The restaurant is very homey and comfortable.

We heard lots of good things about the fish here, so we couldn't wait to try the place! Thankfully we knew about the crazy hours and came for dinner. There was a line of people waiting to be seated. I've read quite a few people complaining about the service, including the people in that line, but we didn't have to... More

we stopped in on a Saturday afternoon but we're disappointed to find them closed. They are only open 5pm-10pm. Was kind of misleading as they have a "lunch" menu but aren't open for lunch.

Service was good. Food delicious! 7 pieces of perch with 2 side orders for only $17. Lots of choices, local beer, homemade desserts. If you don't finish the bottle of wine...you can take it with you! I recommend this seafood restaurant.
