Heard about it through a friend. We were delighted! Seafood and fish were fresh, tender and hot. The squash was delicious. They give plenty of food. I ordered the small portion of the fried mixed seafood and had leftovers. The food was hot. I hate cold fried food! The coating on it was light n crispy. It enhanced the food,... More

The service was excellent. The food as wonderful. My wife had sauteed Lobster and said it was incredible. She also had squash which was just great. I normally do not eat fried fish but I tried the fried haddock dinner and it was very light and flaky and just perfect. There was so much I took half home. Try the... More

We ordered fried fish and chips...the meal was prepared and served quickly. The small portion of fish and sides (garlic mashed potatoes and squash) were more than enough to satisfy my appetite. It's a lively restaurant, lots of local people on the Friday night we visited. The wait staff is friendly and efficient. It's a happening place!

The scallops were large and tender. The baked stuffed lobster was very good! We went on a Saturday night while staying in town. It was very busy but we didn't have to wait.

The atmosphere here is a little dated but, the seafood is excellent. The batter used on the fried food is light and tasty. There is never the hint that the oil used is old. The haddock and other items are very fresh. Drinks are large and there is a good selection of beer. The wine is generous pour. Good selection... More

Had a couple of great meals here. Perhaps just a bit bland. Please add one or two more vegetarian options. Great service, attentive and friendly.

This place has the BEST lobster stew!!!! I ordered the Maine Shore Dinner and it was delicious! And it's market price was a steal! My mom got the broiled scallops and they were also delicious!! Definitely worth the stop for in-town seafood!

Traveling South on 95, I drove through the little town of Newport. I wanted seafood in a casual atmosphere, at a reasonable price. That is just what I found! Wine was $4.00 a glass. ( can't beat that) I had good service. There was a good menu I decided on scallops, good sized portion. Everything looked great on the menu... More
