This place has the snottiest people working there! You walk in and immediately feel the disdain they have for out of towners *( they call us from aways) They do love your money but if they could take it from you without having to do anything they would like it much more, Walked up to the register and this 6 foot tall chick could'nt answer a question without giving me a nasty look.

Go anywhere else but here. their food wasn't even good and the stables were sticky and the place was filthy

We hit this place hungry. Love fried seafood, and we did note the pleasant non-greasiness, but it was super salty and not anything to get excited about. Saw the other reviewers' comments re seafood stews, etc. -- wish we'd gone this route instead, but it's not like they promote it. Atmosphere was bad, service is counter and wasn't friendly. Didn't go back.

Great seafood in a very casual setting! The lobster roll was delicious - toasted bun and overflowing with moist and tender lobster meat - lots of big pieces and not too much mayo. My husband ordered fried clams the first visit and the mixed fried platter the second time. The food is breaded and fried to order - you can watch them prepare your basket while you wait. The platter was HUGE - really could feed two people. No plates or silverware and we ate at a picnic table in the shade near the parking lot, but this is DELICIOUS FOOD!

Arrived with friends around 7pm , the place was packed,we waited around 10 minutes to order and about another 20 minutes to receive our meal. More than one were complaining they did not receive the right orders. We were able to get a booth unlike many after us. My wife and I shared the mixed basket and our friends had the haddock basket. The positives - very well prepared , large portions,lots of shrimp. The negatives - The drinks were watered down and like other have stated , I couldn't believe they didn't have home made tartar sauce!! You have to wait in line , pump it, it's warm,and they only provide one ounce thimbles. For the price that we paid for the meal you would think they would have quality tartar sauce for their seafood. That along with the wait would make me think twice about retuning.

We visited this restaurant after finding it in a guidebook. It is way over-priced for what you get. They had a special- fish roll, haddock soup, and a small drink $9.99. We purchased this plus a crab roll for another $9. The soup was like water, the fish roll was fried popcorn shrimp on a kaiser roll- nothing else, the drink was the smallest cup I've ever seen and the crab roll was tasteless and didn't contain much meat.
