Chosen from trip advisor and not least for the fact we were staying at the Hyatt 15 yards from the front door. Greeted promptly with a friendly smile and the service throughout dinner was excellent. The menu was varied but with an emphasis ( as you would expect from the location) on seafood. I had the broiled combo which was... More

Stopped by here for lunch as we were passing thru. Not much to look at from the outside, but don't judge a book by its cover. We had a excellent lunch you could tell everything was made fresh. Simple, tasty food. We would eat there again, definitely.

It is directly next to the hotel which is quite convenient after we had traveled all day. The food was fresh and delicious. Very casual and a family feel to it. Highly recommend!

Thank you to Jerry, Lynn and the crew. My fiancé and I had dinner at Jerry's this weekend and it was amazing. The service was top notch, and the food was amazing. We will be back, and we also plan to book our rehearsal dinner on site with them. They have amazing WINGS - you must try them! We loved... More

Poor lighting! Could barely see the menu. Waitresses were preoccupied with making sure they got their chance at the next american idol on the kareoke machine. She gave inaccurate prices for the food we were served. The piss clam(steamers) were a little bigger than a quarter and were very gritty. The jumbo shrimp were the frozen vandekamps you get at...

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed when you came to our restaurant. On Friday and Saturday evenings we have karaoke from 10:30. We do dim the lights as part of the bar atmosphere. We do our best to get all of the sand out of our steamers.Typically, they are one of our most popular and well enjoyed items... More

Something about this place keeps us coming back. The NE clam chowder can't be beat. It's that good. Try the rare Tuna or seafood special if it is Swordfish or grouper. Chop salad a must have too. Only complaint is the 2.50 for soda including each refill so if you have 3 it's 7.50. Can get crowded at prime time.

Came here last week for lunch. We sat inside and had an artichoke appetizer that was very tasty. Then we had the fried combo. It was also very good. It came with delicious French fries and a weird coleslaw. Our waitress was very good and friendly. Will def be back!
