We were curious about this place as many have given it a good review. We went with another couple who are orig. from New England and enjoy those offerings. After our experience, we would suggest you only go to this restaurant if you like the fried seafoods of New England. We did not feel the rest of the menu would be worth the trip.
We had an order of onion rings for the table which were excellent. One person ordered the whole Maine lobster, which was prepared well and tasted as it should. Price was good at $19.95 and dinner included 2 sides. They ordered fries and coleslaw. One person ordered the fried clams platter which came heaped full of fried clams, french fries, and onion rings. A lot of fried food but again tasty if that was what you wanted. Rolls for the table were the white, spongey, tasteless kind.
My husband and I ordered seafood dishes served in a garlic/butter/wine sauce over pasta. He had mussels and shrimp while I had mussels and scallops. The mussels were a bit overcooked, shrimp and scallops were fine. Serving (amt. of seafood) was decent. Pasta was cooked okay-not mushy. The issue was the sauce-nothing but a big soup plate of oil/butter. It was so bad we could not finish the pasta as it was swimming in it. And we were not interested in dipping a roll into it. Dish came with a piece of garlic bread, which was good by itself. Price for this was $17.00 and came with a side salad, made up of mostly iceberg.
With one glass of wine, one soda, and a tip, we spent about $52.00. We had to drive about 30 minutes to get to the place and the place is very simple, very casual; shorts and flip flops. Service was very adequate. Nice fellow. We would not go back as we feel it doesn't offer food we enjoy.
