This place is a little difficult to find because it is on a secondary residential street but worth the search. Very, very personal service by the owners. They often go from table to table offering free appetizers that they have created that are not even on the menu. They specialize in seafood but have other selections as well. Atmosphere is... More

We like many people viewing this look on Trip Advisor when going to a new area for some good local eats. Reviews for this place are great and with the Groupon the price is right. That being said I would like to share my experience. The owner seems like he is there all the time, a nice guy, very "east... More

If you want great food at reasonable prices, you should definitely try this! If you like the laid back, casual atmosphere of "Key West" or "Matlacha" type eateries, you will love New England Moorings! We found the food very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious! The wait staff and the owner, Al, are over the top to ensure you have a... More

Went to New England Moorings to check out the food after reading reviews on trip adviser. It was st. Patrick's day so did not know what to expect with crowds. May not have been the owners preference but I think everyone else was out having green beer and other trimmings elsewhere. We like that. We had a drink at the... More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
