“Best Seafood Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

If you are a seafood lover...this place is for you. Their fried combo platter is exceptionally good. They give you two sides and lots of them. Each meal is enough for two meals. They run a fish market in the same building so you know you are getting the freshest fish.

“Love the fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

this is a great place to stop by and pick up some fresh fried fish on way home..pick the fish you want and they fry it up really quickly..great cole slaw and wonderful New England chowder make the meal.. All the seafood is extremely fresh and the shrimp are the best I ever had.

We were in town for a family event..We always stop here,for a few fishfrys..They are the best..The've gotten quite pricey..I grew up with them and remember them at $.35 each when I was a kid and now they're $4.50..Sometimes we have them frozen and bring them back to Florida and cook them at home..MMMMM

“Always fresh and well-prepared.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

The Off-shore Pier is half fish-market and half restaurant. I have eaten there many times over the years and have always found their food to be consistantly fresh and prepared well. I can't remember a time going there and being disappointed.
