Preformed burger on the flat iron lacked flavor of any kind. Fries were above average. Decor and cleanliness excellent. Would not return.

Came with family and friends after a trip to the aquarium right down the street. Loved it! Was very crowded and took forever, but the food was really good and the location wonderful. Didn't hurt that it was a beautiful day!

Great value, great burgers. My kids liked the chili and clam chowder. Eat outside by the water. Lots of people dock to get bait and breakfast.

This is a great place to stop by and grab a quick bite to eat. We had the burgers and fries which were fantastic. Sometimes there is a short wait to order but the food comes out quickly.

The specials are ALLWAYS special. The Hispanic selections are the best. Some great dishes I have not had since I was in California. I would recommend the one on st armonds circle. No ocean views but still the views are exceptional.

Easy dockage, but can be difficult to find dock space because it's usually busy, especially on weekends. Be sure to try the burgers and fish and chips. Good quality and decent price. Ample self serve seating right on the water.

If you are out boating, do stop by and and have lunch! You can moor your boat right at the dock and walk up to the order window. Don't want to eat in the boat? Or not boating? There are plenty of picnic tables on the premises and a small parking lot for those of us in search of a... More

The comment from a Montana tourist when she saw my plate says it all, "Migawd, what did you order?" She was looking at four beautiful, golden brown filets of haddock lying on top of a bed of perfect French fries. I told her that, in my humble opinion, this was the best "Fish & Chips" on the planet. And, equally... More

Great place for a quick bit or a to-go burger to take on the boat! The service is very quick and you can even call ahead to order your food and they will have it ready super fast!
