Great Seafood Market with a restaurant

This is a great place to get live seafood to cook at home. Or, they can cook it for you to eat in their dining room or patio. There's nothing better than REAL fish and chips, made with real fish, not that frozen breaded stuff. It's a seafood market so you can get anything fresh (live). It's on the... read more

Good was awful; no taste on halibut(and very expensive). Magi-magi sandwich very dry; fish & chips were fair. A very poor dining experience.

I had a very nice dinner on a business trip. I opted to order off the menu versus picking my own seafood to be prepared. The meal started with a large Ceviche which was quite tasty. I also enjoyed Fried Mozzarella Sticks which were served with Ranch Dressing - nothing special. My mail course was 2 Combo Kabobs (Grilled Shrimp,... More

Fresh food and unique food selection concept. Order from menu or pick your seafood from display case. Very casual. Good beer selections.

Stopped in while on vacation at recommendation if a friend. Had grilled salmon, hush puppies and a local brew. All were outstanding. The place also is a fish market which might account :) for the adjacent "mess hall" fishy smell (almost too strong hence the 4 stars...) but overall great food (note plastic silverware and wooden tables that resemble picnic...

This is an excellent little restaurant. The decor and seating is basic and it is a fish market as well as ordering almost any type of fish that you then find a table to enjoy. The fish was fresh and excellent and I will be back.

Choose your crabs or lobsters from the live tanks and have them steamed while you wait. Fish and other seafood also cooked to order as well as a good lobster bisque and a wide range of sauces. Dine in option available and wine and beer on offer but we preferred take out back to the hotel room balcony and our... More

very good affordable seafood. We ate there for dinner on a Thursday night. The lobster rolls and the shrimp tacos were both very tasty.

Everything is good here. It's a casual place with picnic tables and fresh sea food. They have a variety of wine by the glass or bottle. And best of all, they crack and clean your steamed crab. Worth every penny!!!
