I liked their cream of crab soup and bought it for years at $6 a pint. It was $10 this spring. No more. The raw fish for you to cook has always been on the expensive side of acceptable, but the cost has now crossed the line. I felt gouged and after many years, won't be returning.

Ordered a takeout seafood meal for 16, including Maine lobsters, mussels, shrimp and clams. Picked up just before serving - cooked perfectly with very fresh corn, great cole slaw and potato salad. Buns were the best. I am very critical of my seafood cooking as I usually do it myself. This was completed to perfection - not over or underdone.... More

We asked for recommendations on local catch with the hope of getting the freshest fish available. Lots of selection, excellent service despite a line of indecisive customers. This would be the first place I would try for fresh seafood in the area.

High-quality fresh seafood. They always have what you want--giant sea scallops, fresh fish, crabs, lobster, etc. Prepared food is great also. The lobster salad/rolls were excellent. Love the Fish Tacos. Very consistent.

We ordered a couple dozen crabs for take out. They were good. Not spectacular for the price but no one was disappointed. Getting great crabs for a decent price is difficult!

Was amazingly happy with the sushi grade tuna and salmon. It seems they have it available everyday. I also purchased fresh shrimp and was pleased with the quality. While I didn't purchase any of the prepared foods and desserts... The desserts looked incredibly tempting. It would have been more convenient if they were open for business earlier than 11am.

The crab and new eng clam soups were great. The crab cake sandwich was tasty. I don't think some people realize how small a quarter pound is before they order the food. They seem to get big orders, so prepare for a possible wait. I would definitely order food from there again.

The food was pretty good :) The soup fantastic! It was done pretty quickly and the service was very friendly! I didn't realize they close fairly early (7 o'clock) but they were still very gracious about taking my late order. Would get food there again.
