I live on Cape Ann, MA. We have the fishing boats offloading fish at the docks every day. We buy from the boats!! Cool Springs fish is as good as we get, just off the boat!!!!! I don't know how they do it but man was it a great night out eating.

Enjoyed the tuna steak, prepared as ordered. Wait staff very friendly. Felt it was a little pricey, so will not go too often. Store front type restaurant. Owner chef also operates adjoining American style establishment.

My husband and I try to go to Cool Springs atleast twice a month. The food is always outstanding, the daily specials are very unique and have always left us extremely satisfied. We enjoy sitting up at the bar and Mary has always made fantastic recommendations. Family owned, very friendly environment- you can not go wrong by eatting here.

Been to this place twice and both times it was average at best. It's kind of out of the way, and the place appears quite dated. Friends had suggested it but for my money, I wasn't impressed.
