My husband and I went for dinner and it was wonderful. The food was delicious (and as always consistent). Our waitress, Sheri, was very gracious. Sheri is the first waitress in any restaurant who brought the pepper flakes and grated cheese before the food was served, not after the food had been served and we had to ask like it... More

A wonderful find for a nice lunch travelling solo or with friends and family. Nice atmosphere with a great view of the bay. The littleneck clams were fresh and served with an outstanding cocktail sauce. Service was attentive and very helpful with facts about the area. Would love to return in the summer when I am sure it is super... More

Thanks Maureen for down home service at this spectacular location for a belly busting seafood extravaganza. Get ready for leftovers (no problem the grub is great!). An easy place to enjoy a casual meal in a spectacular setting. Had the weather been warmer we'd have walked the whole length of the bay, just outside.

We went there with another couple. Three of us had the 11.95 special which included, clam chowder, two clam cakes, entree, and dessert. It was good, but nothing outstanding. For dessert, we ordered the brownie, but they only had one left. The only other choice for the dessert for the special was grape nut pudding. Two of us declined that... More
