I've come here many many times for all the great seafood. Parked right across from Rye beach on the ocean. A delicious lobster roll, steamed clams, and an ice cold drink. After a meal go spend the day at the beach. Cant get any better...More

Friday Sept 14th, quick dinner before HBCC concert. Good service, fish & chips with nice batter & cooked to perfection. Only flaw was frozen French fries! Icky. Inexpensive for the quantity of food.
