Fresh salad, hot biscuits, frozen seafood.

Service was friendly and prompt. Salad fresh. Biscuits hot. Tea not too sweet. Frozen fish and seafood. Prices seem high for what is received but we did take our extra food and had another meal at home. Still a good place for special occasions.

Always enjoy the cheese biscuits and different catch of the day that they have. Our waitress has a goal of becoming a chef and shared her favorite dishes that she prepared with fish at home. She seemed to have a passion for customer service and making sure that she keeps you taken well cared for.

Great place for seafood always love the mussels for starters and service was fantastic. The reason I like this place is that you don't wait too long for food to served and will be back again

I also... More

Our family and extended family went to have dinner at this restaurant on Tuesday night. All of our previous dinners and lunches here have been very pleasurable. We had a party of 10, two of which are toddlers. The wait staff took our drink orders and finally came back later with drinks and the signature biscuits. She then disappeared to... More

Stopped for a early dinner during "Crabfest" and tried the mixed app with 1- lump crab cake and 4 crab stuffed mushrooms!! Delicious and filling. Also had a bowl of Clam Chowder, superb as usual. New cocktail the High Tide is ok, but the price is the High part!!

Excellent shrimp dinner and crab chowder! Service was top-notch, and server was quick to fetch drinks and our appetizers. Our meals were served hot and were very delicious. While we eat here often this was our best service ever.

They allow you to order from the lunch menu even though it is after the normal lunch hours. I enjoy the Sailor's Platter-- just enough food and it's a very good mixture of items. Wait staff was pleasant.

Food was great but serving time was very slow and they weren't that busy for the 4th of July. Had the new shrimp tacos which were delicious but spicy for me which I'm sensitive to spicy foods; despite the waiters comment of them not being spicy.😛
