We first came here when visiting several years ago. We have stopped in every time we come back to the area. The fish is always fresh and well prepared. Staff is attentive and friendly.

Great all around food, for sure, but the chowder is what keeps me coming back year after year. The salmon is great, fish and chips, sandwiches, calamari... I don't recall ever having a bad meal there. But, seriously, try the chowder.
