This place needs a really good cleaning. It even smells dirty.

I did want to stay because everything looked and smelled dirty but my husband had his mouth all set for fried clams so we stayed. The clams were pretty good.

My best friend and I went for lunch and was undecided. I had a good salad, but a salad is a salad. We ordered fried mushrooms that tasted so fresh and were only lightly breaded. Delicious not heavy at all. I had a shrimp roll. The roll was hard and stale. The shrimp were small and over cooked. My friend... More

We have been to Jasper's many times, but this time was disappointing. So much that I doubt we'll ever go back. Their fried clams were just awful. Sorry, no other way to describe it.

This restaurant has been around for a long time. In fact, my husband and I went there for our wedding night meal 44 years ago. It was great then, and it is now. Whenever we eat here, there has not been a bad meal. Have had their seafood dinners, crab cakes, turkey dinners, and all have been terrific. The food... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch on Sunday a few weeks ago. The waitress could not have been more professional in her interactions with us. Unfortunately,the fried oysters had no taste to them at all and i was disappointed in that meal. It was pricey, too. The roast pork was not much more flavorful The cornbread was delicious as...

Jasper's was okay, very cramped, dark, and very expensive. The food was at best okay, and it wasn't very family friendly. The staff wasn't very friendly. The waitress just seemed annoyed and bored.

Not as good as I remember. Service was friendly but the food was a bit overpriced for what you got. The decor is getting a little dated. May return again next year but will try other options first. Did not find it as bad as some other rates..

This is a good place for seafood. They have an all-you-can-eat fish fry night, which is good. We have eaten there for years and never had a bad meal

Jaspers was recommended by a fellow traveler, and I am left wondering about his taste in food. Between my partner and I we ordered boiled lobster and grilled scallops and haddock. All were well cooked , (not dried out) but, they were all barely warm when served. I also had to pay extra for a green salad, something that should... More
