My mother and I had the best seafood combo. It was loaded with fresh fish, scallops, shrimp and clams on our first visit last Sunday. We had relatives visiting yesterday, and we're excited to take them here, granted it would be a 45 minute drive...More

My cousin and I have had their fried shrimp ,onion rings and clams recently and both times the food was excellent. Their batter is light crisp and not greasy!!! Prices are standard for Gloucester and Essex seafood. Enjoy
