I read the other reviews and they must not get out much. A seafood place with no hushpuppies isn't a crime but maybe it should be. The breading on the fish, scallops and clams had zero flavor.

Great fish at a reasonable price! This family owned restaurant has been around for years. If you like deep-fried cod fillets, you will not be disappointed.
