“Delish!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Love this family owned joint. Good service, good food, good prices! Don't let the plaza scare you away! It's well worth it! If I lived there, I would be there a lot!

“Great Value, Great Seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This seafood restaurant is hidden in s K-Mart strip mall but don't be driven away by that. The seafood is excellent. Service was attentive even tho they were very busy. Favorite of locals, so you know they do things right. Husband had the fish and chips. I tried them and they were amazing. I had the stuffed halibat special for the evening. Halibat was perfectly cooked. The chowder is very good. No room for dessert. I will definitely go again. Very casual so great for families.

“Not bad, not spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

The grilled salmon and grilled cod were a little overcooked and bland. The steamed green beans were done perfectly and seasoned just right. The clam chowder was great. The waitress was very nice and attentive.
We'll go back to try the other dishes, this place is always full so they must be doing something right.

“Always one of our favorites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

One would think a restaurant hidden in a mall close to K-Mart and a bank would not be so great, but we were first introduced to this restaurant by a friend whose tenant worked there. We were amazed at how good the food and atmosphere is. The decor is casual beach, though not close to the beach.It's a perfect place to bring a family but yet, the way the tables and booths are set up, one has privacy to share a meal with friends. The food is always excellent, prices competitive. The portions are generous, and the staff is friendly (actually one of the best I found in the area). It's perfect for a fish dinner, and we order take put often from them when in town.
