Great Food at a fair price

This is a place for great seafood without any frills. It was what Legal Seafood was 1970-1973. You walk up and order your dinner which is then cooked and brought to you. We had the Portugese chowder; my wife had a lobster roll and I had scrod. All were exceptional. Go; you will not be... read more

Fries oysters. $22 too much for what we got. Fried fish for fish and chips and fish tacos was mushy. Nice atmosphere and easy parking.

We visit our daughter who lives close to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. The soups are exceptional as well as the fried clams. The pasta with clams has always been a favorite.

The atmosphere is very minimal, it is a fish market with no frills, but there is no stinky fish smell. You can't save tables, you line up, order, then find a seat, Soup Nazi style. The lobster roll is jam packed with lobster, yum! My husband had the stuffed shrimp, and it was delicious and had a little zing. Yum!... More

Stuffies are quahogs with stuffing and chorizo. My husband likes the spicy ones and I love the regular ones. They are very tasty without being hot. Their fish dishes have many options on preparations for example, fried, baked and grilled. I am a Weight Watcher and found many healthy choices. Their service is pretty quick.

You have the option of eating inside or out and it's a place where you bring the entire family, friends, or solo for a nice lunch. Us locals love to come... More

Visited here since it was featured on diners, drive-ins and dives and it's currently #1 on trip advisor. Had the lobster with fries and coleslaw. The lobster had no taste and was a bit rubbery. Even the lemon butter dip, which is what I think it was, added no flavor. I dashed on some Cajun seasoning and that helped a... More

I only had the clam chowder but it was excellent. They packed a lobster travel for a friend and it stayed fresh during an 8 hour car ride. So u of like to have a full meal there when I go back.
