“Perfect lunch! the fried clams are amazing and the oysters fresh”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

This place is HARD to find, but I had read the other reviews and found myself in Westport at lunch time. Ordered oysters on the half shell as a snack, they were really fresh, properly shucked and very briny sweet. I had the fried clam lunch, my husband the fried fish sandwich, both came with fries. The fish was fresh, the breading crisp, crunchy and greaseless.
There are a few tables and we ate our lunch there, with malt vinegar for the fries.
The only reason that I didn't give this place a 5 star review: the tv is on and LOUD. Lunch was perfectly cooked, but not cheap, why did I need to have a collection of newscasters yammering on and on about the presidential debates to give me indigestion?

“Worth the drive”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

wedrive we were staying in Norwalk, but drove to Westport based on TA reviews. We agree!! this is now a must on future visits to CT! Fish was fresh, crunchy, healthy portions, "best ever" said my husband, the seafood snob. Particularly rave reviews to the lobster bisque, which was creamy and delicious.

“Great crunchy fried clams!”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

The fried clams were really tasty. They had a crunch to them. I liked that a lot. They were so much better than the Red Lobster's fried clams. Also, the fish and chips were good too. I would definitley get an order to go again. It's just for a quick bite. This is a dive but a tasty one!:)

“Take-Out Only But Couldn't Be Fresher”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Tiny place turning out perfectly-cooked steamed and fried seafood. The lobster, steamers, and fried fish were all top-notch - the trick is to find someplace to eat it quickly enough. There are a few picnic tables, but it's bare-bones beyond that.

“Great hidden restaurant”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

Best seafood in all of Westport no doubt. Fish and chips are great day in and day out. Lobsters are perfect and the clam chowder Is to die for. Definitely try it if you're ever traveling to Westport.
