My favorite fish shack

My most favorite fish shack. Everything is delicious. I especially like the soups and the lobster rolls. It has a fun eclectic ambiance. My kids love it!

I don't believe I ever paid so much for so little in my life and that includes my first marriage! I ordered a seafood platter to include two items haddock and whole belly clams fried. I got 4 ounces of haddock and 8 clams no french fries and lousy cole slaw. All this for 15 dollars plus tax. , when... More

We were disappointed with everything we ordered. Haddock chowder tasteless - no seasoning what so ever and I suspect frozen fish. The fish served in fish and chips was frozen. French fries with generic cheap tasting ketchup . The place is dirty.

Quick good priced fried seafood. Relaxed atmosphere. Kinda like a summer picnic. The family and I were pleased and look forward to returning next time in Portland.

Fried shrimp and haddock are great, but not so much the clams. The onion rings are really yummy as well, but the Cole slaw was lacking. Overall, affordable and decent, and if you want to eat what the locals rat, then come on down!

My husband's and my take out order of haddock nuggets and fried scallops was extremely disappointing! The nuggets were greasy and tasted more of beer than fresh haddock. And the fried scallops tasted and smelled so strongly of ammonia they were completely inedible. I cut open every one of the scallops and they all smelled of ammonia fumes. I researched... More

I have to say that my wife and I each had the same meal, the lobster rolls. We have had lobster rolls from Bar Harbor to Cape Cod and this one was loaded with lobster meat and a little lettuce beneath it on a toasted frankfurter roll. The only issue we had was the meat was dry. Normally there is... More

I have been going to Susan's for years. It would be easy to drive right by and never notice it on Forest Ave. That would be a huge mistake. It is located in an old service station, but the fried seafood and sides are excellent. Other seafood like the fried haddock, clams, lobster roll and fried...very good and prices are... More
