Visited today and was thoroughly pleased! The clam strips, belly clams, onion rings were wonderful! Clam chowder and lobster bisque were the best I've ever had! Server Debbie was awesome! Definitely will be on our to do list next time we visit Florida!

First night in the Melbourne area and this place was recommended by the locals. it was said that people drove from miles away to enjoy authentic New England fish/lobster/clams. Yes, the place was packed when we arrived so that's always a good sign, right? The interior decor is indeed sparse with tables & chairs from the 50's. Definitely not a... More

I enjoyed lunch at this establishment on Sunday last - and ordered the clam strip basket. I have had this lunch before at this restaurant and it is always noteworthy; this time was no exception. They deep fry them and never overdo them -- they are chewy and very tasty. They have to be freshly caught to be this good;... More

We visited the Treasure Museum in Sebastian and were looking for lunch. The staff suggested this New England type seafood spot about 10 miles north. Being from New England we gave it a shot. Excellent lunch specials and who can beat $1.00 drafts. Their fresh onion rings are the best I have had in a long time. In you are... More

We shared the Captain's Platter. It was amazing. The Onion soup was baked to perfection. The scallops was the more flavorful item, and the whole clams were the more unique (versus clam strips). Service was fast and friendly. Outside eating allowed smoking so we dined inside.

We were taken back as we... More

We have been there and had good food and sometimes we have left after 20 minutes without being waited on. Patio can be overly smokey at times. Quality seems to be slipping over time
