Nice seafood resto

Took my father here for dinner and it was a good experience. Blackened scallops were excellent as was the baked scrod.

So the overall decour was very well themed to a dockside. The service was great with no issues. The food was a little pricey but the blackened salmon was one of the best I've ever had. Overall a great meal at a place I expected to be old fashioned

Being from Tennessee I am always ready for lobster when we visit New England. Friends we were visiting promised to take me to Elmos for lobster and it did not disappoint (see pictures!). Christina did a great job serving us. Our friends enjoyed their crab cakes and seafood crepes.

If you sit in the bar area when Joe and his wife are there it's dinner and a show.. Funny.. The food is good and they'll make some changes for you if needed. And the drinks are real drinks, not metered and watered down. The owner comes around to talk and see how things are. Nice. Happy hours are good... More

We had a group of us about 30 people that came for dinner! The staff was very welcoming and the food was amazing! I had the rib eye which was cooked perfectly and was huge! Make sure you ask for a doggy bag! Thanks for making our dinner very enjoyable and memorable!

I come to eat here a few times a year, sometimes with my family and sometimes with friends.The food is consistently good and they clearly take pride in their menu. . The service is usually attentive and efficient.Never had an occasion when my family left the restaurant dissatisfied with our meal or the service.
