The BEST fish chowder I have EVER had!

A must you try the fish chowder. Absolutely delish! I would go back just for the chowder and salad. I ordered the salmon dinner and it sure seemed to take a long time for me to get my meal. But the fish chowder, I loved!

Stopped here for lunch and was thrilled with the meal we had. We started with shrimp empanadas-very good with a little kick. Then we had crab bisque which was wonderful. Stuffed salmon was our entree which included bread and family style salad, choice of potato or rice and served with a vegetable. We ordered off the early bird menu which... More

It starts with warm, home baked bread. Then there is a mixed salad, served family style; a generous portion. You have a large selection of fish, and offerings for landlubbers. entrees come with potato/rice and a vegetable. Desert consists of fresh cut fruit of complimentary. All told a great value. Try the pecan crusted snapper. One of the tastiest fish... More

When walking in one notes a huge sign for the Men's room. Trying to find the ladies room is more difficult. We were not greeted by staff and basically ignored. One fantastic waitress ran around to serve well over 10 tables. Seafood is high in price normally so we expected to pay. Salad was served family style in a worn... More

Last ate here in Sept 2015. I like that the salad is part of the meal with no extra charge. You get two dressings with it. There is also a bread basket served before the meal. After the main mean, you get hot almond towels for your hands along with a fruit basket, again, no extra charge. This is a... More

They have great flavors and quality in the many fish dishes. I usually get the specials to try something different and beverage disappointed. Ambiance is decent, prices are high but so is the quality and service, nice for a quiet dinner together with someone. Lots of food comes with an entree even a fruit basket.

The restaurant is in serious need of help, both with the decor and their recipes. Interior is very dated. We were seated next to a half wall dividing two rooms. Note to manager, try wiping old food stains off once in a while. The only thing going for me for my $30 entree was the bread. It was hearty and... More

Went for an early dinner, there were 3 of us and we did not have reservations. They sat us right away, the place was busy but not to crowded. We had the shrimp scampi, seafood jambalaya and broiled salmon. I wasn't able to try the salmon as on of our guests inhaled it, great by her. The scampi was very... More

Great food and great wait staff. Went for a birthday lunch for my sister with 2 other friends. We were there for 4 hours visiting and never felt that we were in the way. Great wait staff never rushed us. Sea food very good.
