The fried haddock was very good and my son's mixed seafood was also very good. On the negative side, the haddock was placed directly on top of my fries which made the fries soggy. Better to place the fish to the side of the fries....Now that I'm home, I notice that my clothes smell like I just left a greasy spoon restaurant. Ventilation system needs to be improved. If I ever go back here, I'll probably order takeout.More

I moved to the area from the North East in 2017. I kept saying to my wife we have to try them. Finally in early 2021 we tried it. Well all I can say is I wish I had waited another 3 years. We ordered...3 lobster rolls and fish and chips. Well the food was not even average. It was horribly tasteless. I can honestly say I will not go back.More

Outstanding seafood! Shrimp, haddock are great. Chowder is wonderful. Fast friendly service. Authentic New England dishes. Pizza, pasta and Stromboli’s in addition to seafood.

I may have just ordered the right thing but everyone at our table (6) loved their food. The Lobster Bisque was the best I have ever had! That was complemented with Lobster Ravioli with delicious sauce! I was lucky enough to try my friends Scallop...and a shrimp. WOW! I cannot wait to go back to this place. Reasonable beverages topped it off! Excellent customer service! It is a small place but they do take reservations over 5 people.More

My wife and I stopped in and it was the first time visiting. She got the lobster roll, and I got the whole clam platter and it was incredibly good. We will be back.

We got takeout. My husband had fried haddock (excellent), fried shrimp (excellent) and fried clams (horrible). I had a fried clam plate. (Horrible). I am from New England and know good fried clams. These were terrible. Gave the restaurant a try. Village Fish Market in...Punta Gorda is much better.More

We just moved to Port Charlotte and were looking for a take out NY's eve meal while unpacking. We were pleasantly surprised... Fish filets were good (fries a bit overdone and cold) and the service at pickup was pleasant!

I am 64 yrs young. I had my first lobster roll. It was a little over, done but delicious. Order extra butter with the hot. Coleslaw was tastless. My sister had the 6 piece jumbo shrimp basket with fries. Both were good. We brought food...home. The place got busy before we left. Around 2:30 pm. There are two tables outside the diner.More
