“It was just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

A little over priced, nothing special. It was a hot day and it was hot inside. Service was good but it was hard to enjoy ourselves because it was hot inside. I would rather try something else next time. Not terrible but not worthy of a return trip.

“Best clam cakes on earth!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013 via mobile

MCH has a great vibe on a saturday evening with live music, was a little loud for enjoying a quiet dinner but great to relax with friends. Most delicious clam chowder and the brick oven pizza was good also but left a funny after taste the clam cakes though are out of this world delicious, I could eat those daily! The decor is just average, nothing fancy. And our waitress was nice but seemed a little frazzled. I would go back, just for clam cakes though.

“local spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This restaurant has been in business for more than 20 years and has been consistently good. A few years ago it moved to its present spot. It was originally housed in what was an old time gas station which appealed to the locals..

Excellent seafood... but now has a great pizza oven!

“What happened”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I started coming here when they were at their old location, so I've eaten here many,many years. "what happened"...My husband & I ordered fish & chips. It was the worst of the worst. The fish was barely visible under the batter & I had the light batter. It use to be a nice thick piece of fish ( 3 pieces for a large ). Now it looks like you get 1 piece that was sliced lengthwise to make 3 pieces out of it. The baked potato was extremely dry & chaulky. My husband's fish looked like mine & the skin on his roasted potatoes were very hard to cut thru never mind trying to chew. The prices have gone up $1.50 more on the large fish & chips. $12.99 now $14.50. I wouldn't mind the higher price if the quality was there. We will now eat at Turk's down the road.

“Bar food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

Food was mediocre and service was indifferent. A substitution on a side was made without asking for preference on alternatives.
