First of all I would be negligent if I didn't say our server Samantha was outstanding! She was very responsive and pleasant and also was very attentive. The Chowder was stocked with clams and delicious. The fish and chips orders were huge. The lobster roll was different and delicious and without mayo! Everything was great! I will differently recommended this... More

Great meals had by all in our party. We had to try the chowder and it was fantastic. The consistency wasn't the thickest but the buttery creamy flavor was the best I've had other than homemade. The pan seared scallops were cooked to perfection and the halibut special my wife had was just as good. The location is unassuming for... More

Even late in the season the staff was attentive and friendly. We were seated almost immediately and served the great appetizers we ordered promptly. The Katama oysters were shucked in front of us at the raw bar and the rest of the apps came out soon after. Can't say enough about the chowder. Best I've ever had. Will be returning... More

This restaurant isn't cheap but the clam chowder is fantastic. Not too thick and full of clams. After dinner walk across the street to the Flying Horses Carousel

Promised us a table and made us wait over an hour for it. When we arrived we were told our table was still unavailable and that we would need to wait another 45 minutes to be seated apart and there were no assurances that we would catch our ferry back. They made no apologies. Management clearly lacks sufficient intelligence to... More

With lots of options to choose from, we went here for dinner and weren't disappointed. I had the truffle risotto balls and tuna tartar which were incredible! Tuna was so fresh and the risotto balls were so tasty. For dinner we all had the same, risotto and scallops and they were a great choice! 5 scallops which is pretty good... More

Restaurant has the best chowder we have ever had. Food is excellent and servings are huge. We had fish and chips and wife and I could have split an order. Prices are very high.

We have had dinner here before and it was great, but it can very busy and there often wait for a table during peak season. Drinks at the bar were fantastic, food is always on point but the best place for kids. Don't forget the chowder, it is worth the wait!
