Still good but prices moving up and portions shrinking

A good varied fish menu, served up quickly. Have noticed prices moved up and portions actually smaller (They try and hide it by piling on the french fries.). Stick with the shellfish for best value. Place your order at the counter and await them calling your number. Excellent Clam and Oyster bar... read more

The food is super fresh because its not only a restaurant, its a fish store as well. The portions super fresh and good - prices are just OK. Enjoy...

We NEVER eat here as a restaurant. Did twice-enough. A lot of out of towners and people from the adjoining towns. However, clams, mussels...you really can't mess that up (I hope!!). Good fresh fish as well, but you need to know what to buy & when.

This place is supposed to be a staple. Bought big scallops from here and brought them home to make for dinner. In the resturant I couldn't smell them because everyThing smells like fish. At home I couldn't even open the package because the smell was so bad. I brought them back and the counter man told me I probably left... More

When you just want seafood, don't want to pay an arm and a leg and don't mind eating off of paper plates, this place is pretty good. Very nice workers they had helping. One girl who was helping in the dining room this week with short hair was super helpful and very nice to my family and I.

The food is ok not like it used to be. The prices have been creeping up while the or toons are shrinking. It's a shame. The prices are too high for the portions u get.

The place looks nice and clean, but that's all. I went there for first time to have a lunch with my son, we choose that restaurant based in reviews, reason I write this one. I asked for sparkling water, the girl who was taking my order asked to an older woman and this one said to her to make the... More

If you're looking for tablecloths candles and atmosphere, don't come here. If you want fresh seafood, always cooked perfectly, at reasonable prices, this is the place. No frills, order at counter and pick up when ready.( Drinks sold at a separate counter.) We ordered cajun catfish, which is hard to find on Long Island, and calamari. Everything was cooked just...
