They always have the best selection and varieties of seafood. The clam selection is the best quality around the entire region. Buy from them every chance we can.

Got some steamed crabs to go. They were tasty!... Staff was very friendly. We always stop in when we vacation at the Crest.

The seafood is terrific. Some of the restaurants - especially one's on the water - are pricey tourist traps. If you are looking for fresh tasty seafood...this is the place.

Casual atmosphere, fast service and some of the best fried scallops I've had in a long time! Will definitely go there again.

Great food and fast service. Parking is limited and tight. Arrive early they are crowed. They also offer take out.

The search is over!! This restaurant has the best crab cakes; great flavor with a lot of crab meat. I have gone to seafood festivals and have always been unhappy with their version of crab cakes.

This is our go to fresh fish shop on the island. Ask all the questions you have, staff is wonderful and happy to help. We usually buy everything cooked there - scallops, coconut shrimp, king crabs, etc. All wonderful.

If you're like me, you are not cooking on vacation. Going out every night can be inconvenient, loud, and expensive, though, that's why this is such a good find. We ordered two number one seafood combos (broiled shrimp, flounder, scallops, and a crab cake) and a pint of clam chowder. Our order was delivered to our door piping hot in... More

I have enjoyed this location for many years. But this year, something is different. In the past, I have purchased the swordfish grilled and it has been the best. This year, it is awful. First the size was so small. The filet was maybe 1/4 inch thick. In the past it was a nice filet steak. Second is was dried... More
