An incredible way to spend an evening

This is Princeton's seafood place! It has a great selection of fish and other seafood. One of the highlights is that one can sit outside on the sidewalk (with the heaters on when it gets chilly) and enjoy the great atmosphere of small town Princeton as you eat. We had the clam chowder (excellent... read more

It's pricey but worth it. Everything is made to perfection and your requests are honored with a smile. Some places give you a hard time if you want to share an item. The service here is great. We told our server we wanted to share and were brought two plates with our food evenly divided and beautifully plated. I have... More

The best fish you can get!! If Halibut is on the list, order it without even thinking a second time! Clam Chowder is just one step from heaven....only one issue...it is very difficult to get a table, always reserve before showing up or you will be missing the best food in town! it is very noisy, so if you planning...

I have been to this restaurant twice now and both meals were amazing! The prices are about average for the location and the high quality. The servers were very pleasant and attentive. The decor of the restaurant is rustic and makes you feel like you are dining at the shore. Everything was cooked perfectly. Be sure to make reservations as... More

If you go here for great seafood, the place is super in and around Princeton. Be prepared to wait. Waiting time for diner can be long. Seating is limited, both inside and outside. Outside next to the street was too busy and getting cold, so we accepted quick seating at the oyster counter. We sampled fresh oysters from an impressive... More

Surprisingly good. Fresh seafood caught local or wild. Excellent blue crab nachos. Probably the #1 Crab Nachos I've ever eaten. Excellent, will come back.

The 2 keys to this experience are the fact that all fresh fish is labeled farmed or wild, and there are some hard to find options here, which give you the chance to try new things. the fish is simple grilled, or blackened nothing hiding or covering the fish, Portuguese Sardines, a dozen types of oysters, trout, sea bass, grilled...

I love seafood and this is the place to go - in this area - for good, fresh seafood, It's fun to have so many delicious choices. There were so many types of fish that we had to ask about them to narrow our choices down. Our waitress was very helpful, she answered all of our questions and was very... More

I love this restaurant; I'm sorry only that it isn't in my neighborhood. A dozen different kinds of oysters from east and west coasts; had 6 of them; really cold and really delicious. Most fish is wild caught. Had softshell crabs and Barnegat sea scallops--both were delicious. Not inexpensive, but when you consider it's BYOB, it is very reasonably priced.... More

Visited with my mom for dinner on a Sunday night and had a great dinner. The menu is printed daily and notes which fish are wild caught. They also offer whole, head and tail-on fish which is quite rare. We ordered the octopus as an appetizer, I ordered the whole fried striped bass, and my mom ordered the pacific triple... More
