Halibut special was out of this world! Dinner with my boss here, booth are great for meetings and offer lots of space. Interesting cocktail menu and diverse appetizers - angry muscles are an absolute must!! Fish tacos are the best around as well.

Get the fish tacos. Always good. And fish and chips. But save room for the Banana Pudding, it's fabulous, or just go straight to for the dessert.

My husband and I were thrilled to find this place! We're both raw oyster lovers, and this place has great ones at a fairly reasonable price -- especially on Mondays when they're just $1 each. My husband had the Ipswich clam platter and I had the Grand Mainer lobster roll (it also has fried full belly clams on it) --... More

Decorated to look like a New England fish house, but don't be put off by the kitchy design. There is good stuff here, my favorite being "lobstah" rolls. Traditional or Connecticut Style, I like both of 'em. Don't miss the Chips and Guacomole for a appetizer.

Good beer choices and nice happy hour food selections, bar area only though. Pleasant atmosphere throughout but setup makes it a bit noisy at times.

Had heard a lot about this local seafood restaurant so when a friend recommended it for a group of us to go to dinner I jumped on the suggestion. The food was fresh, the service was good, and the prices were good for seafood in the area. Something I would enjoy visiting again.

The food (salmon, Lobster tail and scallops) were excellent but the service was not. The server disappeared for long periods of time, forgot to put in the entree order and had no personality. We have been pleased many other times but not this visit.

Thank you for your review. We will use your review as a coaching tool. Was the three star rating based on all of your visits or just the one visit with the service issue? Just wanted to get an accurate measurement of the restaurant as a whole so we can coach our team. Thanks. More
