If you are into seafood, it doesn't get much fresher than this place on the beach. If you don't see something on the menu, turn around and behind you is an actual fish market where you can specify what seafood/fish you want and the restaurant cooks it up for you. I had a bowl of clam chowder (delicious) to get... More

Great time to have fresh crabs steamed just so. It went well with our own concoction - vinegar, calamansi and fish sauce, simply heavenly! What's also good - it was not so crowded and we had a fun time hammering away the hot crabs. Not so good though - they only have one restroom. There's no place to wash one's... More

We ventured down to this restaurant which is a Market that sells fresh Fish & also cooks meals to eat on the premises or for take away.... More

Fresh seafood and reasonable price. Plenty of car park available for those who drive. Try their lobster bisque. You won't regret.

Had the special-Ono. Not bad. Really wanted some fried flounder but they were out. Very casual. Grab your plastic silverware and wait for your number to be called. Throw down a big sheet of white paper as your tablecloth and enjoy. Decent beer and wine selection. Extensive seafood menu including pick something from the market and have the kitchen cook... More

This is the best place to eat! Not only is the atmosphere and service great, but the food matches! They offer fish, crab, lobster! I had some of the best oysters I had ever had here. The service is great and the seating is very welcoming. Surprisingly, this place is super affordable. Highly, highly recommended.

Went about 30 min before they closed but still got great service and food. Had the lobster roll and grilled shrimp dinner and both were excellent.

My husband and I ate here for lunch on a Saturday afternoon. He had the Salmon and I had Tilapia. Both were delicious and came with a side of salad greens. The restaurant was more casual than we thought but for lunch it was fine. I only wish the serving sizes of the fish were larger as they were grilled... More

The food here is great. Casual atmosphere which is fun- picnic tables. You order your food and find a table- no waitress. We went with a group of 9 it was perfect. A little pricey, but- seafood is typically expensive.

Great location and friendly staff. Lots of draft beer options, outside sign advertised three cocktails but they were on tap not made to order. Our fish tacos were superb, the clam chowder was good but average. It's bus your own table and it was impossible to find one that had been wiped clean in between customers. Sit outside to hear...
