Excellent place to go and listen to live music, enjoy the water some drinks and some dancing. Food was almost average. "Whole Fried Clams"? NOT...half of the 20$ side dish were necks and the belly clams were TINY and DIRTY... again I am not a fan of prepackaged tartar sauce. 25c for extra? The Clam Chowdah was descent. The Stuffed...

He have made this our annual gathering place for Fathers day, however, this year was not that great. The line to order food was so long that it took 30 mins. or more to get to the counter! Even then, there were only two cash register and they need someone to direct the flow of the lines. After you wait... More

We went there last night and waited a while for our food and will not be returning for food ever again. The atmosphere and bar was good. I could not recommend this place to... More

We had a nice time here, as it is great to sit on their deck and overlook the bay while eating. The food is exactly what you would expect (lots of fried items - most probably previously frozen - like the clam strips, shrimp, etc). It would be a little nicer if they used more fresh local seafood, but all... More

Went here on a reccomendation on a local TV spotlight. It was a cloudy Saturday with some sprinkles of rain (not a washout) 95% of the stores on the boadwalk were closed (it was 2pm) so that was a little dissapointing. The food was over priced had the Captain's Platter for $25.00 and it contained 2 nice good tasting pieces... More

Its a very nice place with beautiful scenery (see photos) but the food is overpriced and frozen. If you don't mind frozen - pre breaded seafood then this will surely please your palate. Not mine though. Worth the scenery only. I would recommend to experience once for the view :)

Make sure you bring the kids and plan to spend some time. The seafood is the best!! Bring your camera to get some great photos around the docks at the whimsical cut outs. After you can't eat another bite, take a stroll down the craft shops and grab a memory to take home until your next visit.
