While the lobster roll wasn't all I was expecting, the scallops and clam fritters were amazing! I love that you can BYOB too. All in all I will definitely be returning. It was very relaxing to sit in the sun, enjoy the view and not...More

Delicious lobster and plump fab belly clams. I enjoyed the cold lobster roll more than the hot. Definitely the spot in town to go to!

I ordered RI chowder and large lobster roll. It was well worth the ride from the casino. I'm coming back in the summer :)

Stopped by for lunch on a cold snowy Friday. They had just opened for the season. We ate in the fish market with a nice view of the water and snow. Lobster bisque was great. So was the fish sandwich- nothing processed about it!!
