Great date night!

We had a lovely dinner by the water. Waited a few extra minutes for the table. Beautiful night to be outside! We are recently transplanted here from the Midwest and received great guidance from our waiter. Started with the steamed mussels in a delicious garlic and butter broth. My friend had a... read more

We picked this spot because it was known as the "restaurant with the singing bridge." Well, the bridge has been replaced and now it's just a regular bridge. BUT...got to hand it to him for making this a marketing gimmick. The New England Chowder was very good, the crab dip not so much. Enjoyed it, but do not need to... More

Love the food it is always fresh. Love the atmosphere. Doors open, sun out. We usually sit inside to start. Then move outside. We have gone both during the week and weekends. Weekends during the summer are very busy. But worth the wait.

We were worried as the lot was full, but got a table outside after a short wait. Our waiter recommended the tuna appetizer when asked, and it was great. Three of us had the lobster, shrimp, crab seafood salad and it was the best I've had. Spouse felt like steak and had the prime rib which was OK. We enjoyed... More

Amazing view. Great service. But as far as the food so-so. Clam chowder tasted like it has a cream of mushroom soup base. Definitely not a fan of that. So i would pass ordering it again. Fish and chips for dinner. Fish was a bit soggy and fries over cooked. Not much flavor there. Rice pilaf for a side. Tasted... More

Good Food and great Service. They have a full bar and any kind of seafood you want. Fried, grilled, baked, you name it, they do it.

This is the place that let a dog stay in a hot car without doing anything because the manager knew the owners. If you love animals stay away and get your lobster across the street at eds.

Good place for seafood, or burgers. They have a bar, but most people sit outside. Sitting on outside deck is nice, can see the water. Gets busy in summertime. Staff is friendly, food is good. Four ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. Bring Cash, they do not accept credit cards, or debit cards. They do have an Atm.
