Stopped in over the weekend and made the mistake of not making reservations on a beautiful Sunday. We ended up waiting over an hour for our table. We ended up grabbing some drinks at the upstairs bar while we waited for our table. I am not sure if it was just me but everyone seemed to have a staring problem... More

Chowder had a few chunks of flour, and not too many clams, but the casino was excellent. Very nice bartender and service was very good. Not too fond of the tablecloths upstairs in the dining room, but the... More

Very small parking lot, and parking on the street is difficult. Views from the restaurant overlook the river, the drawbridge, and the neighboring Seaport. Famous for their seafood, including clam...

My husband and I had a delicious dinner at S & P Oyster Co. He had the monkfish with black risotto and I had the scallops. We both enjoyed our meals and will go back again!

Great meal - but expensive - good service - felt like they were anxious for us to leave - as it was a busy day - but I had not seen my friend in a long time and we had alot to catch up on - she lived in Essex
