“Relaxed place for take out style seafood”
Reviewed May 22, 2013 via mobile

Small place with a variety of seafood dishes. You order at the counter and they bring your order to you. Seems popular for take out. My fried haddock was good but next time I won't order salad..it's mainly a few slices of tomato on a huge bed of wilted greens.

“It's certainly not the Fish & Chips.”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

I really wanted to like this place, but I was dissapointed.
To be fair, I ordered the fish & chips. Maybe it's the other fish/seafood choices of which the owners are justly proud?

Although not cheap, our halibut was small, overly battered and overcooked. The fries were very overcooked as well. The restaurant itself is small, unexceptional and minimally clean.

“simple and delicious”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This place has a very simple menu and is cooked fresh to order. I found the halibut serving size to be small for the price paid. Otherwise the fish was delicious and served with ample side of fries.

“Great alternatives to fried fish”
Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Had the haddock wrap was really nice and fresh. Lots of nice fresh seafood options on the menu. Can't wait to go back for the lobster special on Wed.

“Good food at a good price”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Try the seafood platter, fish tacos and/or the salmon burger. The place is small so come early, be prepared to wait, or select the take-out option. It would be nice to have a beer to go with the fine food.
