You have to try the seafood dip trio. Its the best . Seafood platter is very good. Most all other places are the same price, if you think it's a $$$. Good music is also a plus.

We have enjoyed several truly wonderful and relaxing dinners here. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff is attentive and friendly and we truly enjoy the food. By now we have sampled numerous dishes and yet to determine our hands-down favorite. The one item we always order, however, is the New England Clam Chowder.

We have loved HH's since we first discovered it about 4 years ago. Every time we go to the coast, we make sure to have a dinner here. Just one street from the ocean, you can hear the waves and smell the salt water from the parking lot. Then you step inside and the decor is cozy and nautical. I... More

We've driven by this place many times. It's been there forever and shows it. Parking is minimal in front but that's made up for by a lot in back. Decor is 50ish with naugahyde red booths. Nautical motif which matched the restaurant theme. You could spend the whole mealtime looking at all the details. The front bar area was packed... More

Food was great, one of the best gush n chips I've had. Fun atmosphere, great views on the water. Wait staff seemed somewhat unattentive but was adequate.

I lived walking distance from this place. As such, I gave it many chances. Three, to be specific. Three turned out to be too many for me because it just got worse and worse every time I was there. Food, service...I would feel upset just walking or driving by it. I don't know how they stay in business to be... More

Not real fancy, priced well, good food, a little loud - lots of people. Basic food is best.
