We frequent this wonderful restaurant so much, me have become friends with the wonderful wait staff. The salads are fresh, the sea food prepared beautifully, such as scallops that are soft and sweet not rubbery and tasteless. The lobster roll is as good as I have ever had and there is a nice selection of preparations of various fish and... More

This is a neighborhood go to place for a fresh seafood meal with simple sides and reasonable wine and beer choices. If you are not a fish lover, they make a great cheeseburger. I am always surprised by the beautiful way the chef prepares my meal in such a simple restaurant. I like my fish well done, with no added... More

Wine list is limited -- 3 cheaps for read and 3 for white. Service is friendly, ambiance is local folk, differing from the more... More

Went with a group of friend.food was great. Very tasty lobster meat. But on my opinion the price is a bit pricy but you get pretty good food in return.

Just back from our third visit to this unadorned restaurant and fish market. We never tried anything but different shellfish dishes and noticed that most of the other customers were eating shellfish, too. The lobster bakes are excellent, with plenty of mussels or soft shell clams on the plate. A surprise hit was the paella: clams, mussels, shrimp and scallops... More

Always like to go and get the Lobster Dinner. I think it is a great deal expecially on Thursday when it's only $20. You get a lot of food, Lobster, muscels or steamers, corn on cob, potatoe and a salad.($25) Service was ok. Atmospher ok. Good not Great! Casual atmosphere.

If seafood is ur thing, this is the place! Not an expensive tourist trap. This is where locals go to enjoy a great seafood meal. (Or to buy fresh seafood from their "market" section of the restaurant). Went on a Thursday (Lobster-fest night). Had the special and Jumbo Stuffed Shrimp. Lobster-Fest,comes with mussels, corn on the cob and a potato.... More

We went here on Saturday the 13th for a family birthday dinner and there were 9 of us in our party. The food was excellent, but the service was terrible. We were here for almost 3 hours, mostly waiting for service. This restaurant is very well known in the area and has two sides - the restaurant side and the... More
