I enjoyed the clam chowder. It was rich and creamy with a healthy portion of clams. Very tasty but needed a touch of salt. I really loved the ahi tuna sandwich. A nice slab of tuna with a great bun (not too big, not too...bready) You get a healthy portion of sides with your meal so come hungry. Good fries that were just smothered in garlic. Heaven. Once again needed a bit of seasoning, i.e. salt, to cut through heavy garlic. The IPA on tap was awesome. Friendly staff. Tables outside were great. be sure to grab a paper table cloth on your way out.More

We walked and in and the line seemed to be moving. You order at the counter, you find your own seating, and your number is called when your order is ready. The tables were not cleaned so we had to wipe it ourselves. The food...looked good. The calamari and fries were tasty. However, my daughter got sick from the clams. We're not sure how "fresh" this really was even if you see the live fish at the market.More

Shame on me for thinking that fresh means tasty.... the fish and chips are overly saturated with grease, not even in the same zip code as The Codfather in Charleston, SC! The tarter sauce... may as well have dipped into a jar of mayo! The...hush puppies are OK, missing a good dipping sauce. Attention to detail lacking.... ordered macaroni salad and got chips instead, and completely forgot our beers. Let's face it, this place is only good for people who don't want the fresh fish smells of the restaurants right on the pier!More

Always delicious with lots of fresh options in the counter. They have soups and several sides and offer several different cooking styles for fresh fish. Good beer/wine menu and lots of seating indoor, partial indoor and fully outside. Can get packed during weekends and at...dinner time - with a line outside the door and around the building :) but it moves fast and the food is worth it.More

Best meal I’ve had in a long time. The fish was very fresh and cooked perfectly. I will definitely do a return visit soon.

We were excited about being able to choose our own fish and have them cook it. That part was pretty cool. We got fish and chips. It seemed like we had to wait kind of a long time as there weren’t that many people in...the restaurant. It was nice to sit outside at one of their picnic tables. Our expectations were high as this restaurant has been in business a very, very long time. But it wasn’t really anything extraordinary. Just pretty ordinary seafood.More

Fresh seafood cooked to order and delicious! Be patient because they are busy and it can take a while to get your food, but it will be worth it!

Great friendly staff, ordered a scallop plate takeout meal with coleslaw and rice pilaf. Entire meal was excellent especially for a take out and was prepared in 5 minutes. I highly recommend this as a dinner takeout option during these lockdown times. Great job folks...we appreciate it.More

I ordered Grouper charbroiled. It was delicious! I was part of a group of 6 and we ordered different dishes and shared. The sashimi was yummy. My sister ordered blackened fish and it was perfect. Generous portion salads and steamed vegetables. I do recommend bringing...sanitizing wipes because I didn't see a lot of paper towels.More
