Super fresh seafood in a no frills, family friendly setting. The whole belly clams and oysters are sweet and juicy. Great prices very good service and easy to get to. You can have dinner and then pick up seafood for the week.

Enjoyed some good lobster here while attending the RV rally. Very busy but worth the wait. Outside seating for overflow crowds as necessary.

Been there before for lobster rolls and went there again to get some fish. We saw the lobsters and asked how big were they. They said they thought some were 2 1/2 or even as big as 3 pounds. We ordered one each for our...More
