“A fresh seafood dive ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We had the fisherman's platter and lobster grilled cheese - the seafood was simple and very fresh. You order at the counter and you eat off paper plates and plastic forks but it was fine. They were friendly enough and their takeout business was constant for a late midweek night.

“Pass it by”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

The place is just nasty. Food is greasy, clam fritters are heavy and have zero flavor. Prices are ok, but do yourself and favor and go somewhere else. I was so dissappointed. Ate two of the 6 fritters ordered and tossed the rest. I will never go back there again. For being a seafood place on the coast, you would think that they would know how to cook good seafood. Hey Guys, try to improve, do a better job, offer quality food. You can do it. As it is now, it is disgusting

“Greasy and Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Had fried clams just after lunch rush. Apparently they were preserving the deep frying oil for dinner, because the clams tasted greasy and over-cooked. Counter person was unfriendly, seemed like she didn't really care if we spent money there or not. Would not return - food and service much better many other establishments.

“A Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

I had to get Trip Advisor to "find" this place so I could write a review. It's not very impressive from the road - just an old ice cream store. I've driven right past many times without giving it a thought. Desperate for some casual seafood, we stopped one day.

It was really good and I can't wait to go back (I'm an out-of-towner who goes to Groton to visit family). It's not fancy, but it's more than fried fish-n-chips. While the fried fish was very good, we also enjoyed the other entrees and even the chowder.

Do stop in when you're hungry for some seafood.
