This has been a regular stop on mine for lunch a couple times a month for as long as I can remember. Finally decided to take time and write a review. Keep in mind that I have never been in the evening for dinner. Food has always been awesome and I find the prices for the lunch specials reasonable... read more

I have eaten here many many times over the years and have always had a good experience. I usually either get the fish & chips which I believe is called "Pile O' Pollock" or stuffed flounder. It is a small place so get there early or be prepared to wait.

AWESOME food! I strongly suggest the "Pile of Pollock!" They are located in Woodford Square Shopping Center right "in" the corner. If you are facing Food Lion...it's to the right. They are closed on Mondays. Casual dress is absolutely fine.

Not much needs to be said. This place has great food. Almost a hidden gem. I hate that I moved to Florida, but it's definitely worth visiting when I come to town. Fried fish is good, oysters good, and so is the rest of the food. Staff nice as well.

I've been going to this place with my family since it first opened, and the food is excellent. Their she-crab soup is awesome, and all of their seafood dishes are well portioned and cooked just right--not dryer out or under cooked. I love the fried scallops and fried shrimp here. It may seem strange being in a Food Lion shopping... More

Atmosphere was cramped and hectic. Kitchen is open to the dining room, which is loud. Tables did not seem dirty, but whatever the tables are finished with is reacting with their cleaner and leaving the tables feeling sticky and dirty even though they are not. Waitstaff was good and a kitchen mishap with one of my dinner companions was handled... More

This place has great food. We had the Calamari Platter which was amazing. Fish tacos are some of the best I have had. I will definitely go again next time I am in Suffolk.
