Always stop by here when in town. Great Fish and Chips and the Tuna Melt is also outstanding. It can can pretty crowded and noisy, but that is part of the ambiance. The service is friendly and warm. The chowder is also very good.

Great seafood and ambience! We sat at the bar for lunch and watched all the action - the line cooks are so fun to watch. Get the fish tacos and the chowder...yum!! This place is popular, you have to get there early to beat the crowd. So worth it and not very pricey!

We had delicious hand made cocktails and the BEST Crab Louie Salads at this restaurant. Service was on point, fun atmosphere, and a place that the locals frequent.

Log wait and no selection of foods for the most part. We like to experience restaurants, and sometimes go back. This is one that is only worth the one visit and now ewe can say we tried it. Not impressed.

Had a good fresh fish meal here one night, we ended up going again a few days later! Stay with what you know - ordered the same thing too! Just as good the second time around. Pricing is good and service too. It does get loud towards the back so keep that in mind when asking for a table. Its... More
