Wonderful lunch - seafood is fresh and delicious. Family owned restaurant - owners and servers were delightful - super friendly and very attentive. Food was delicious - a bit pricey for lunch, but you certainly get what you pay for.

Fun casual place, best fried Ipswich clams in the word, dinner or sandwich size. Coleslaw is my fav. Finish off with a slice of apple pie. Beware, though, CASH only. Atm onsite if needed.

I had the 12 shrimp meal, for $20. with fries and a soft drink. Shrimp were large and fresh, the fries were perfect, right out of the fryer and the service was quick. Cheap paper plates are the only real negative because you actually get 13 or 14 shrimp and I felt like I got my moneys worth. Not fancy... More

$25 for a plate of clams n French fries (BTW the French fries are awful). Now don't get me wrong the clams, actually most of their fried fish are very good but at a price. Everyone should try this place at least once, coming back depends on an individual's preference.

Go for the fried clams. Been here a million years and still serving up great seafood in a funky atmosphere. Getting a bit pricey, but worth It.

This is a must when you like fried fish and are somewhere in the region of Long-Island. I had soft-shell crabs. Crispy and fresh. And the same applies for the home made french fries.

This small little restaurant only has a counter with stools, but if you want the best new england clam chowder, you have to go here. Other fried seafood is also very good
