Great food here, nice family run Seafood Shack. Fish is fresh from the market next door daily. Crab cakes were great, chowder was great, cole slaw and fish great! Lots to eat here. No liquor, but Iced tea or soap still fits the bill. Owner and staff were very friendly and professional.

The place is quite small so book ahead if you plan on sitting down. They also have take out which may be a better option if you do not want to wait for a seat. The food was okay portions are small cost is high.

Awesome petite place for seafood. We ordered lobster roll and clam chowder were really good. Then next night we went back to get blue crab. They were fantastic and wasn't as expensive as I would imagined.
