Always Consistently Great Food!

Whether for Lunch or Dinner, the level of service and food quality is exceptionally great! They also have a wonderful Happy Hour Menu! We love this restaurant. The best New England Clam Chowder Soup and Seafood Dishes!

Great venue for parties or couples with an extensive menu to satisfy any fish lover and the odd carnivor. Let's face it, you have to be odd to eat meat in this fishy heaven.

Finally got around to trying the restaurant out after seeing it was going under renovation. We went for happy hour in the large and plush bar area. The service was excellent and the selection was of pretty good value. They also offer late lunch specials which are on the lighter side. So many choices of fresh fish. There are several... More

Waited at bar first with a glass of wine, waiter service at our table by "Z" was excellent. Sourdough bread can't be beat either..our first date was here 27... More

We have been here 3 times now, once for lunch and twice for dinner. We have young kids and they did an amazing job by bringing our an activities sheet and crayons. Such a simple act allowed my husband and I to enjoy an "adult" evening. We ordered a bottle of the NZ Sav Blanc, fantastic. The squid for starters... More

This popular restaurant has a lot of similarities with the sport of fishing. Sometimes you have to wait a long time until you get the first bite! It is clearly a business decision not to take reservations, but it results in a frenetic and uncomfortable atmosphere in the reception area, as people arrive very early for dinner, to meet a...

My Husband and I had lunch here and we pleasantly surprised how great the place looks since the remodel. I had not been here in years. I ordered the stuffed Salmon with Crab meat. The Salmon was delicious, but I had a hard time finding the Crab. My Husband ordered the Fish and Chips with Halibut for $19.99. He would... More

Went here for the first time with some friends. My wife and I had the fresh yellow fin tuna (seared) and it was delicious. It came with soup or salad and two sides. I highly recommend the New England Clam Chowder. Drinks were reasonable and service was good. We will definitely return.
