We were on vacation at a slow time of the year, I was told, but it still would have helped to have a reservation. It is a cozy little restaurant and the food was great. My wife just reminded me that I stated that it...More

We needed diverse menu and Jack Russell’s did not disappoint. Comfortable, very nice waitress, and a tasty golden ale. All entries were enjoyed. Filet, haddock and scallops. NJ gives it a thumbs up!

I had the clam chowder to start. It was by far the worst chowder I've ever had. To be honest I'm a "seasoned" seafood eater and I was shocked someone could mess up clam chowder this badly. Besides that I had the fish and chips....More
