There is a god awful smell when u walk in the front door, which is mostly likely the carpet, but if u can hold your breath til u get seated, it's worth it! Food is really good and it's a great bang for your buck! It's just that smell when u walk in that has detered us from coming back!... More

We went as a family group of 6 on a Monday evening. We had calamari and scallops with bacon to start. Delicious! I had salmon that was tasty and well cooked. We could not see the view of the water because it was already dark. Friendly service. Plenty of parking. A solid family get together place.

Live nearby and this has always been a good place with typical seafood menu items at a great price. A wonderful prime rib, too. All come with salad & bread. On Saturday nights there is a live band which many places don't have anymore. There is a large bar that you can eat at, too. A great local go-to place... More

When my wife and I need good fish, fresh salad, great cooked carrots and a wonderful bread pudding. I like it when it is moist and has more raisins, which it often does. (not always). The service is very good and friendly. Nothing fancy, but the price is right. We love the place.

Another establishment I make a habit of visiting when I'm on the north shore. So many choices of dishes on the menu. I usually order the baked-stuffed Haddock and it is always delicious! (for over 20 years!) Prices are reasonable, service is always friendly and accommodating. The bar is huge! Views of the Boston skyline from the dining room beautiful... More

The seafood here is very good and the prime rib is very good with a decent portions of both. The only issue I ever have is slow service but the atmosphere is very good. They do have outdoor seating which is nice with a view of the water.
