Female employee was screaming about communism and swearing like a trucker from the kitchen. Then she stormed out of the kitchen stating that she refuses to wear a mask. We would have left if we hadn’t already paid. Wish I could say the food was...good after that episode but it wasn’t. Lobster rolls were rubbery and over cooked, the fries were greasy and undercookedMore

We went here tonight as I was craving fish and Italian and I knew I could get it here. We pass by this place frequently, then forget to go here when we go out! We enjoyed eating outside during the warmer months especially during COVID,...however now it is cold outside and we love to eat out and frankly I don’t think I increase my risk inside a restaurant anymore than I would at a crowded supermarket chain. Tonight we sat at the bar, there was no one within 6 feet of us, ALL the servers wore their masks and we witnessed the hostess wiping down our menu before handing it to us. The place was spotless and so cozy with a fireplace. Now on to the delicious food. I got shrimp cooked Fra Diablo style over linguini and it didn’t disappoint. The shrimp were large and cooked perfectly and the sauce was just spicy enough. My red wine went well with it and the pour wasn’t stingy. My husband had the haddock which was very good although he wished it was more of a center piece as it was thin. The onion rings were yummy. The hot rolls were very tasty and fresh. I topped off my meal with an espresso martini and it was delicious. The service was good, we never waited long for anything and everyone was friendly. We will return over the winter months and feel safe doing so!More

Met friends here who have eaten here before. I would have left but for them. No sign on the door requiring masks. A piece of paper on the wall once in suggesting a face covering. Surprised when given a plastic covered menu. I had my...wipes so I cleaned them. Since the pandemic any restaurant I’ve eaten in either has disposable menus, a chalk board or you access it from your phone. We outside where is was very noisy from traffic but didn’t feel safe inside. Food was okay but I never felt comfortableMore

We wipe our menus with sanitizer. We literally have a hose that shoots out quat sanitizer like a fire hydrant and wipe everything down all the time. Sorry it was noisy outside . I can’t control that. If you don’t understand covid guidelines by now...More

Our one stop place. We are from Rhode Island and my husband is an experienced seafood cook. This is an excellent restaurant and the service is great. To start, we ordered the stuffed mushrooms and steamed clams, both excellent. My husband ordered the fried seafood...platter and I ordered the baked stuffed scallops, both exceptional. The servings are more than generous, but more importantly the quality was great. I strongly recommend this restaurant and can’t wait to try out the Italian fare tomorrow.More

This place is so subpar! The food tastes terrible especially the clam chowder. Service is bad and prices are too high for what you get. This place is a dive!More

We went to this restaurant after reading reviews on Tripadvisor. The food was delicious and big portions. The hostess and our waitress were very friendly. The only negative we have is that the waitstaff were fighting. We were sitting near the kitchen area and there...was a dispute going on that was loud enough for customers to hear. We would definitely eat here again.More

Little guys birthday and he loves seafood. We tried after reading great reviews. We had to sit inside because of the weather change but were appropriately spaced and it was quiet. The hostess and waitress were very nice. We were seated at a dirty table...with water rings still on it from the last people, ketchup stains. My waitress (very nice) offered my son some communal crayons for which he decided on his own not to use. The food was great! I wish it was pre pandemic so I could give it higher stars. The staff had their masks down around their chins which freaked us out. The people coming out from the back kitchen didn’t have masks on. Working on the frontline of this pandemic people need to see that the masks prevent customers from not getting exposed. Although we live in a safe area, tourists from high risk states are a large percent of the business for this establishment and staff could be sick with no symptoms. We were disappointed with the lack of following the regulations they did here. We did enjoy the food and the staff was great....will try again if we get to a safer place in time.More
