I service was very good, I think the salad bar was a little disappointing, imitation crab meat. I also felt they were overpriced. 18$ for 12 oyster half shell as an example. Our meals were good. Would I go out of my way to come back? No

We went late on a Saturday afternoon and had the "Sunset Dinner." It is their version of an Early Bird. The sun was shining and we had a window seat and watched all of the boats coming and going. We started with the New England Clam Chowder which was absolutely delicious. This is our favorite clam chowder in all of... More

I feel bad because most of the other reviews on this site are positive, but we had a terrible experience at this restaurant. The salad bar was very good but the food went downhill from there. The fish did not appear to be fresh. My husband had the flounder two ways, listed as house speciality item, tasted like it was... More

Eaten here dozens of times and have never been disappointed. The tables next to the windows that overlook the inlet are the best! Our kids stay entertained by watching the boats come and go. The menu is large and there's something for everyone. They offer specials that include soup, salad, meal, and dessert. The seafood here is top notch and... More
