Chowder was very good. Green salad w/ pecans n dried cranberries w/ blue cheese was great. Fish n chips were good. We ordered out, and the missed a bowl of chowder...there was still enough food to go around, so no biggie.

We went here with friends and the service was friendly and quick. We all loved the chowder and fish & chips and clam strips and chips. Our friend really liked the fish tacos.
