My visit here was due to it being chosen for a club meeting. It was my first time here and had never heard of the restaurant. I chodr the lobster salad and there was an ample serving of lobster. The others had a variety of...dishes and were loved by all! So glad they had a meeting here and I’ll definitely be back!More

I really wanted to like this place, but it was quite a disappointment. We were seated indoors, and it felt like a dining room or a cafeteria in a nursing home. The tables, walls & decor were just dated. We're in our early forties and...were the youngest people we could see, other than a few kids there with their grandparents. Bar drinks were okay. For food, I had the Nantucket Trio and the shrimp, scallops and cod seemed overcooked and had a fishy taste about them. I ended up dousing them in tartar sauce just to finish my meal. The clam chowder soup, coleslaw and onion rings were fine - nothing to write home about. My husband had the chicken parmesan pasta and he ate some of it and summed it up by saying how dry the chicken was. The best thing about our visit was our waitress. She was really pleasant and provided good service.More

The food here is delicious! I specifically enjoyed the steamed clams, cooked to perfection. We ordered scallops that smelled amazing and tasted just as great. The clam chowder is filled with meaty thick clams and was seasoned just right. My husband ordered the cleaned lobster,...which I also tasted and it was just I expected. Delicious! Our oldest daughter had the chicken wings, which she devoured. She never eats her entire plate, but this time, she cleaned it up! Our son had chicken tenders and fries (his go-to at every restaurant) and said these were the best he's had. Our server was awesome and very accommodating. She had such a great personality and even brought candy over for our kids. The manager came over to say hi and make sure our meal was perfect, who also greeted our kids. We will be going back every time we go to Melbourne to visit my dad. We will also be requesting Barbra as our server, as she was on point with everything and helped bring our experience close to perfection. What a great environment, with incredible food and awesome staff.More

Not really a place for locals, poor selection of fish… mahi-mahi and cod . We wanted crab legs …. Nope 86ed .Clams cold , overcooked, rubber. Scallops stunk up table. Chicken on flavorless Caesar , dry,cold. Chowder was so thick it mounded in the cup....Clams were scarce. Server seemed to be so high and did not write down my guest‘s order and joked he gets nothing when everyone else is being served and then realized they never put in his order. He ordered the cleaned lobster which appeared to be a handful of bulk lobster meat used for pasta and bisque. Ordered the “ naked wings “ with teriyaki on the side and of course they came coated in sauce. The server was trying to tell me that naked wings came with teriyaki if no special requests for buffalo style. She then informed me they won’t take them off my bill like it was my plan to get free wings. I had to stop talking to this person as I was trying to stay civil. Never again. Not one out of five of us enjoyed the experience service or food , but the fish flavored onion rings were good.More

This place is a local favorite. The food is always good and the service friendly. I highly recommend the fish & chips, which are excellent. They are served with huge portions of French fries and onion rings. Definitely a place to include when you visit...MB.More

First off let me say that before this last visit, I’ve never left this place hungry, quite the contrary. I ordered the Nantucket Trio, my Wife, the large Fish and Chips. Our waitress was wonderful. When our dinners were brought out I was very surprised...at the small portions of both meals. Again, we have been steady customers for 10 years. My dinner had what looked like a 1/2” patty of fish along with a few shrimp that were hard and the size of a Quarter along with Scallops of different sizes. There was no sauce at all that was a part of the dish , only very Parmesan heavy breadcrumbs that left you with more of a cheese bite than seafood flavor. The scallops had a mushy, fatty texture and when cut in half you could see what looked like globules of fat, almost like stingray wings if you’ve ever had them. All of this could maybe be excused due to being busy save for two things. This dish was $27.95 up $3.00 from some months ago and worse, the baked potatoes were left overs from the previous day, reheated. This is the second time in as many visits that this has happened. For $27.95 it is a reasonable expectation to get not only a decent portion size served as described on the menu, but also a fresh potato. I understand raising prices due to supply and wholesale price issues, but not serving a subpar meal given the increase. As always, dining out is a choice and not a necessity. I left hungry and actually felt very cheated by them.More

I had clam chowder for a starter and it should be labeled potato soup as there was nary a clay in it. The salad had iceberg lettuce and tasted like packaged lettuce. Next I had fried clams and they were horrible, .they were very thinly...sliced and I could only taste the breaded oil that they were fried in. Could not taste the clams at all. Having eaten Cape Cod clams and chowder this was a poor imitation.More

This site was recommended by a lot of people around here since it is one of only places to eat around this locale. The hostess and staff were very friendly. It's basically an older place and has a very diverse menu. They have a full...bar and cold beer. The food is pretty much all fried and the oil seemed like ti has not been changed recently. Overall it's not a bad place but not great.More

You must stop at this restaurant! The New England Clam Chowder far exceeded this New Enlander's expectations and left me wishing I ordered a bowl instead of a cup! Fried clams are outstanding and the onion rings quickly flew to the top of my list...of Best Onion Rings EVER. Be sure to ask for Lisa...best waitress in Florida. If you don't stop here, the loss is yours. ❤More

Let's start on a positive note. The food, as always, lived up to expectations and is consistently good. HOWEVER I am aware how difficult it is at present to find good staff in the hospitality industry, but that does not excuse the attitude of the...'greeter'. Frankly, had our visit not been for a friends birthday, i would have left. This has to be the rudest person I have EVER encountered 'front of house'! Does the eatery not realise that this person gives people their first impression of the establishment. Well, our impression of her did the restaurant no favours at all. Not only was she rude to us, she was also snappy and rude to our server whilst she was trying to seat us, and who was the nicest girl, and i would say, a little embarrassed by this woman's attitude to us - the 'paying customer'. Our server was extremely helpful, kind and friendly - maybe they should offer her the 'greeter' job, and put the one they had today out back doing dishes! If i did come back and encountered the same woman on the door, sorry to say I would not be staying! She needs a few lessons from Charm School! I sincerely hope she does not get a share of the tips - she didn't earn them from us anyway! Note - my 5* review for service was for the waitress only. The greeter got a BIG zero!More
