Be prepared to wait because the word is out . . .seafood here is excellent. I had baked haddock that was very fresh and flaky. The view is spectacular. We will definitely return.

Small restaurant on boat dock. We sat on outdoor deck half facing parking lot/half facing the sound. About 6 tables outside. Travelled with non-seafood eaters. Delicious fried belly clams and fries with a very nice side salad. Boys had chicken fingers, husband had a burger. Just what we were looking for on a beautiful sunny day after coming from the...

This restaurant is a little hidden gem! Not much to look at and very hidden, but once we found it, we were pleasantly surprised. We ate outside right on the water - beautiful! The lobster salad plate was good sized with delicious , fresh lobster and it came out as a make your own. Very good. Would recommend!

This was our last restaurant and their last day of the season 2 years ago. We had a wonderful meal. The other day our lunch was not poor, not average but somewhere in between. Service was also subpar.

We always liked the whole-bellied clams, but our friends ordered it and all the orders were burnt. They couldn't eat them and was offered only 10% off the bill. One friend wrote to the owner and never heard from her. We were reluctant to go back, but we did. We ordered steamers and I couldn't believe it, but they were... More

We found this place by accident and had our first night's lobster dinner here at this casual lil restaurant and it did not disappoint. We had been travelling and were not up for the muss and fuss of a large,full service restaurant. We were seated right away, and our waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. the deck sits right over the... More

Our party of 8 from 3 generations of uplanders reserved two outside tables at 6 PM and had both excellent and friendly service and great clams, haddock, and especially succulent mussels. All that and plentiful parking.

If you are in the Scarborough area this is a good bet for fresh seafood. The lobster roll was not the best I've ever had, but was very good. Their fried food was somewhat greasy but had a good flavor. The outdoor seating is very small so you have to be a bit lucky to get a table.

Excellent food in a great setting. Service was quick and friendly!! Food was fairly priced. Hard to find this combination on the water!

Great location and fabulous food! We ordered bouillabaisse (expecting soup) and received a MASSIVE bowl of clams, mussels and half a lobster! 30 minutes later we found the broth. No rouille - tomato sauce on top and jarred garlic in broth but the shellfish was super fresh and we ate the lot!
