FRESH FRESH FRESH SEAFOOD!

If you want fresh seafood with just the right amount of seasoning to enhance the flavors of your seafood, then this is your place. So nice to have the owner, and chef Joe stop by each table making sure you are pleased with your meal. Joe takes pride in his dishes as he should be! My husband and... read more

My wife and I arrived at rush hour, so we had to wait for a couple of minutes to be seated. This was our first time and we found the restaurant small, but filled with patrons who obviously were enjoying their choice of the many seafood restaurants in the area. We were able to observe the operation and were pleased... More

Food was average. Friendly staff and home like atmosphere. Small restaurant with about 8 or 9 tables seating 30 to 40 people. Portions are small compared to the price. All food are served on disposable aluminium pans which is also used for takeout of leftovers, if any. Expect to wait 10 to 15 minutes in line during normal meal hours.... More

I had the lobster roll and found it was super fresh and tasty. My wife had the broiled scallops and shrimp which she said was delicious. Crab cakes and crab chowder are on our list for a return visit - soon. The owner is vey gracious and our waitress was friendly and efficient.

My friends and I decided to give this place a shot after reading about it on this website. I had read one concerning review about someone that had to wait a while for their food and figured that was a fluke and we gave it a try. While the food did look delicious, after waiting for over an hour for... More

What can I say, I do appreciate the fact that you took the time to give us a review, hopefully we can improve upon our service. I do remember you and your group, after all you are the only group of people that had ordered entries and then walked out without paying for them; a little heads up would have... More

Went there on our vacation due to the reviews on Tripadvisor. We got there right as they opened, and they quickly filled up. The food is served simple in to go boxes, but that doesn't matter....it was very good. We had the broiled seafood platter and the lobster sandwich. Both were great. Simple food done right! If you go to... More
