The food and service were good but the atmosphere wasn't. The bar was right adjacent to the eating area and very loud.

We were given a recommendation to eat here and we knew it would be good. We were not disappointed.
There is a very relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, old photos on the wall of fishing boats, reminding you it is still an important shipping harbour. The staff we found to be extremely friendly, helpful and efficient. There was an excellent choice of appetisers, mains and desserts. They also had a breakfast menu. When the food arrived, it was well presented, the vegetables were fresh and perfectly cooked. Fish succulent. Rice tasty. It was busy, but we didn't feel rushed. The portions were perfect, not too big and not too small. We have been travelling around the southwest USA for 2 months and this is one of the best restaurants we have been in. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Best Bloody Mary's we've ever had...incredible service, great food. This little hole in the wall was a great find, and obviously very popular with the locals as well. Clean, friendly, lots to choose from. Really, really nice!

This cozy spot right in the harbor is a local favorite. Staff is equally friendly to the weekenders. Chowder is excellent! Service quick! Atmosphere nautical. Full separate bar.
Extensive menu with moderate prices.

Used a Groupon. The restaurant is what I would call a hole in the wall which is not bad but I use it for small restaurants that are not a chain. We were seated at a table in the bar which was noisy but okay for lunch. My wife ordered a grilled crab sandwich, I had the Halibut and chips. Both of us thought the seafood tasted fresh and was quite good. A little high price for the atmosphere but they are in a tourist location. Service was not as prompt as I would like, a man seated us and immediately brought drinks but it was a few minutes delay until the waitress took orders. The food came fast but a delay in getting the check after done eating. All in all a good experience, we would return even without a Groupon.
