Just went here for lunch with the husband but have visited many times past with the kids. Great limited seafood menu for fantastic prices. Small, non fancy, ocean front venue. Has kid friendly options. Food taste is improved by dock & boat views! Essence of...More

Disappointed. We drove 2 hours to get there and was looking forward to the food only to find it closed. Trip Advisor still shows it ‘open’. I suggest calling ahead if you’re planning to visit.

If you only care about the view, good choice. It is fresh seafood as restaurant is attached to fisherman’s co-op. If you care about taste, preparation, or presentation, then there are better choices nearby. Here $14.99 gets you a make it yourself lobster roll on...More

Awesome fresh seafood. Tucked out of the way, but very popular. Reservations only for 4 or more people. So, go early or later to avoid a wait. Scenic view of bay, and inside or outside dining. Casual, good value. Have been visiting on annual trips...More
