Service was downright rude

The food was ok or maybe better than ok I was so pissed off that I was in no mood to enjoy the food. When we entered, it was not busy and no one was in line to be seated but we were told that "someone would be right with you" We waited for a few minutes and another person... read more

We were greeted and seated immediately. Server was nice and polite however she brought our bill before offering us dessert. Did catch a glimpse of the dessert menu before we ordered our food looked good not your ordinary type of pies and cheesecake etc but noticed Bread Pudding and Chocolate Mousse. We had the baked Seafood Dinner consisting of Cod,... More

Went there and was disappointed with the fried clams. They were not close to the fried clams I was able to get back east. Although they did have the bellies,they were small and really tasteless. The sea scallops were good. Sorry, but it was a long ride to get there for something that didn't live up to the hype.

For the best fresh fish in Phoenix, this is the place. Always a large selection (baked cod is my favorite) and very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is family oriented and relaxed. Great chowder and steamed clams too.

If you are looking for a pretentious dining experience, this isn't it. Generous portions of tasty seafood with good service is all you will get here. A couple of haters below, don't know what happened to them.

This place is second to none for New England style seafood in AZ. It is the only place where they serve fried clams with the bellies and they are delicious. Great chowder, scallops, shrimp and fish from all over the country are available. One bite, close your eyes, and you will think that you are back on the Cape. This... More

The seafood is excellent at Taylor's! I spent my summers as a kid on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard, and got spoiled on the best seafood in the world there. I have been very disappointed by most of the seafood I've had in other parts of the country since then. But when I tasted my first Ipswich fried clam at... More

Agree with the posting titled "Massachusetts in Arizona." I'm from Massachusetts and the seafood here was just as tasty as some seafood I had back home. A fine selection of wine and beer as well. The service was pretty good, and the noise level in the restaurant was low, making dinner even more enjoyable. I've recommended it to other people,... More
