I remember back in 1993 when I used to live around the corner from here and never knew it was there!! My father came to my house one day and bought some seafood and when I asked where he got it from, he just looked at me! I guess he was floored because I literally lived in around the corner!...

I went with my whole family of 15 people and they took really good care of us! The fish tasted super good and fresh!

A fun place to visit for some AWESOME seafood! We have been there 4 times since moving to New England (we live in MA) a year ago. We are not a big fan of fried anything, so it's refreshing to find a "shack" that offers something not fried (though I am quite sure anything there is good!). There is great... More

A seafood shack with a great menu. You cannot go wrong with this place. The decor is beach theme with outdoor tables. A local favorite.

I was visiting friends and they insisted upon a visit here and I am thrilled that they did! They have lived on the CT coast most of their lives and insisted that I get the lobster roll. Oh my goodness! The shack-like appearance, the mostly outdoor seating, and ordering at a counter did not prepare me for the delicious food.... More

This is hands down the freshest and best--batter is homemade; nothing frozen. All tastes great and very fairly priced. Cash only, but it's worth going out of your way to an ATM (they also conveniently have one there). The gang does a consistently great job, year round. NOW I find with my latest order (tonight it's scallops and whole belly... More

If you love fried seafood, here is the place to go! This tiny shack on a corner near the beach in west haven packs them in. The fried food is done to perfection and the chowder is fresh and packed with clams. No matter what you order, you will be pleased. Remember.. Cash only. No alcohol .

Right on a W Haven beach road. Popular so a bit tough parking but went around the block and then there was a spot. Plenty of clean shaded benches. Ours under a blackberry tree with gentle birds harvesting nearby. Two of us bought the Treasure Chest - Scallops, shrimp, haddock, clams, another fish, fries. Crispy light batter and fresh tasting...
