Great seafood!

You'd think it was easy to find good seafood in the Boston area, but it's not! This is our go-to place for fried clams, but I will tell you -- the lobster cobb salad is a work of beauty!! Whatever you are in the mood to eat, this is a nice comfortable family restaurant. The staff is lovely, and... read more

Although I love their breakfast menu and go there several times a month, the lunch and diner menu is very good too. Great family place. Good quality food for a great place. Don't go for atmosphere as it can be noisy

Went there with my wife and son. Bar on left, dining rooms on right. Kind of an odd layout but hey, whatever. The place is a bit dingy and dark but that kind of hides the dirt, which is nice. The food was comfort cooking all the way. We enjoyed everything we ordered. A random Irish band was playing to... More

I went again to have breakfast and we ordered English muffins again. For my surprised it was really fresh. Now I am comparing the last muffin I got last time were really old. I am questioning myself about the rest of the food maybe sitting in the fridge. They really need to pay attention on the floor, still messy.

Great family restaurant with a huge menu. The staff are very friendly and professional. Food comes out fresh, fast and hot. I recommend one of the oven baked omelettes, they are delicious.

It doesn't get worse. Greasy over cooked deep fried sausages, lousy home fries, bread slathered in butter. Must have been the same person that cooked at Ft Leonard wood in 1970.

I've been here several times for breakfast and just recently for dinner. I would definitely say breakfast is their best meal served, but their dinner is ok. Although the burger was ok. The steamers were surprisingly good. Please see photos.

Wanted to get away from stuffy chains and found good reviews for this place. Went in for an early dinner and there were a decent amount of locals which is usually a good sign. Had the stuffed haddock, chowder, and a seasonal brew and they all hit the spot.
