Decided to stop here as we all like seafood and it looked a real homely restaurant like on man v food. We weren't disappointed as food was really good. It is simple there....paper tablecloths and plastic knives and forks (would of preferred normal ones to be honest ) and paper plates but crab, shrimps and their mashed potatoes are great.

The calamari appetizer was the most delicious thing I have ever tasted. the food was awesome. The only thing that could have made it better was having new england clam chowder instead of that yucky tomato based chowder!!

Went here with family while visiting the area. Line out the door. We all got a cup of clam chowder for $2.95 while waiting. Lots of clams in a red based soup. Dinner only had 2 fishes.. Halibut and Salmon and both frozen fresh. Shrimp and scallop scewers came with coleslaw and a baked mashed potato. Salmon was average. Cole slaw good as was potato. All food served on paper plates. Prices range from $15-20 for most dinners. Service was good.

This place is a little quirky. Paper plates, plastic tableware, very "diner-y" feel, more servers than customers yet service was still slow early on a Wednesday night. And it's not cheap. But the food is great. In fact the shrimp skewers spaced with bacon are the best any of us have ever had. My wife's halibut steak was outstanding, as was my King Crab. The cheesy mashed potatoes were really cheesy tasting. We'll definitely be back when we're in town again.
