I love Lucy's shrimp tacos and they were wonderful! The chips were a little cold and the person I was with got the full belly clams and got sick, unfortunately.

Menu varies daily based on what fresh fish is available but everything is great! Restaurant is kind of small inside but well worth the wait. Also the bar makes great Margaritas.
