Great Portugese food.

Love this place. Had the shrimp Mozzambique and we ordered an extra bowl of sauce and all of us sat there and dunked our Portugese rolls in this deliciousness. Service a bit slow, but waitress is very helpful and cheerful.

We have been here once before and wait over an hour both times to get our food. We decided to try it again tonight hoping the wait for our food wouldn't take that long again because my 2 year old was with us and it's kind of hard to keep her occupied for a long time. Tonight from start to... More

First time there mid-day, restaurant side was empty so the service was excellent and all meals were very good. The portions were exceptional and we all took some home. Menu selection was extensive.

This is one of the best places for portuguese food! I always have to come here for the pork and potatoes meal, as they have the best flavor of any other place around. My husband loves lobster, and he always enjoys his baked stuffed here as well. Their kale soup is delicious, and at times throughout the year I will... More

Great food, great service! Can't go wrong. Something for everyone on the menu! Baked stuffed scrod always a winner! Mussels Marinara, and Fried Smelts! We've never had a disappointing meal here in the last 25 years!
