Nice view

Met family for dinner at this local favorite. A seat outside offers a worthwhile vista. Food is good, though I would probably skip the basket since the fries and coleslaw are rather ordinary. Still with the seafood. The clams and scallops were nicely prepared. Portions are reasonable for the... read more

Still with the seafood. The clams and scallops were nicely prepared. Portions are reasonable for the price. I would return when on the south shore again.

I really enjoyed my lunch here. The menu is extensive with both seafood and non-seafood. The location is directly across the street from the beach. We were there on a summer day and it was great place to eat. I specifically went to this restaurant for the lobster roll and it did not let me down. Full of lobster and... More

Stopped here on a whim, glad we did. The lobster rolls look just like the photos and are huge and very tasty. Our son had the fried fish which was very fresh and very good! Great spot on the beach.

We enjoyed our dinner and the amount of food was great - leftovers even. I had baked, stuffed shrimp which included salad and delicious rice. All very good. Our table was next to the window so we had an excellent view of the beach across the street. There was outdoor seating, but the sun was going down and getting a... More

I've been here three times this summer. Each time I have had something different. I would recommend all of them! The fried clam roll and scallop roll both come with French fries or for a small fee onion rings can be substituted. The lobster roll comes with potato chips. It truly is the best around! Stuffed with lobster. It can... More

Lobster roll was delicious and worth the price. 8 ounces of lobster on each sandwich. A must on your trip to Quincy!

As a born and raised New Englander I can truthfully say these were the best fried clams I've had. Clams were plump, cooked to perfection, and you could taste the ocean freshness in every bite. Batter was golden brown and delicious. Fries were cooked super as well. Only complaint was the cole slaw that came with the fried clam plate... More

Atmosphere is very beachy, right on the beach. The food is excellent, but the fried clams are the very best you can get anyplace.
