Great food. Great drinks. You cannot help but love Perlo’s. Every visit is like the fun Christmas Eve party at your favorite uncle’s house. Try them, you will love it.

Good bread. Good fried calamari. Good New England clam chowder. Standard side salad. Friendly “relaxed” service. Outdoor seating but with a view of a gas station across busy (noisy) street. The salmon was good. Fish fry was nothing special. The battered haddock was a little...More
