This is a great place if you're looking for New England seafood. One of the few places in Florida where you can get full bellied clams and not just the strips that most southern restaurants around here serve. We had the fried captain's plate which had clams, scallops, haddock & shrimp & onion rings - a generous plate and adequate... More

My entire family and I have been patronizing this restaurant since it opened ! Always had excellent food and service until the original owners sold . Wait staff had been there for many years, now the wait staff has changed every time we've gone there . They always state their seafood is flown in DAILY, but when questioned as to... More

ok …the cons are , you come and order your food and pay for the food ( like a fast food place) then you sit and wait for it , there's no view of the water , it can be loud and crowded. When we went there , there were people standing and waiting and it wasn't clear who had... More

what are you looking for? Florida seafood or New England fish? This restaurant does not fit with the atmosphere of most local seafood places, nor does the food. We are looking for fresh seafood--not frozen. We noticed that fried was the better of what was offered. Great service, but no Florida atmosphere...... So, What are you looking for?

We always drive down to the Boston Fish House in New Smyrna Beach. Great fresh seafood with dishes common to New England, but not common to Florida. Most of our party had the seafood platter which was a huge serving.

Tons of food for the price and so delicious! This is a 'must do' on every beach trip! We've been coming here for 15 yrs. fried shrimp and fried onion rings and coleslaw. You won't be sorry!

We love this little mom and pop place. Arrive early and you are surrounded by sweet snowbirds. Head in later and there is a line out the door. Order when you walk in and then they seat you. If you love to indulge in fried food, this is the place for you. Plates full of fried clams, onion rings, and... More
