A little no frills restaurant on a non-descript side street in a boring part of town--but the food is terrific. Fried clams are fresh, flavorful, not fishy and not greasy. The haddock sandwich was one of the best I've ever had anywhere in New England and the cole slaw is smooth and creamy and is a great complement to the seafood. Onion rings are lightly battered and tasty. And if you don't like seafood, they make an amazing cheeseburger that is just perfect. This is a great place for a summer lunch, and they have take away too.

We had an excellent, no frills dinner. The fried sole was probably the best i have ever had. I heard no complaints on the calamari either. My husband was a bit disappointed in his clam belly roll as he said it was strips and bellies, not just clams with bellies. I do not eat them so couldn't tell the difference. Each order came with a huge order of onion rings and french fries. Took a big bunch of them home as well!

Went here based on reviews read on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. My husband had been craving fried clams. These were perhaps some of the best we have ever eaten...light and not greasy. Cooked so they had just the right texture. Delicious. Looking forward to going back to try other items on the menu.

From some of the descriptions we'd seen and the recommendations we'd heard, we expected a larger place with a bit more atmosphere, but found the order-at-the-counter with a very short wait for great seafood to be accurate. When we were here during a pre-Memorial Day visit to the Cape, we;d describe the weeknight atmosphere as steady but not crowded. Lots of folks stopping in briefly for to-go orders. It was great to see a menu in a counter-service place that included broiled seafood options as well. But tonight we were both in the mood for deep-fried seafood (as it was meant to be). Our fried scallops and fried full-belly clams both came with generous servings of both French fries and onion rings. We thought the seafood was great, the fries quite good, and the rings just okay. The highlight of our meal was the light, flavorful breading on the seafood, which had obviously been dropped into light, fresh frying oil -- great look and great taste.
The atmosphere here tends more toward utilitarian than fancy, but the emphasis really seems to be where it should be -- on the food !! If we'd had more time in town, we suspect this place could have quickly become one of our "local favorites."

This isn't fancy. The building used to be a Howard Johnson's restaurant. The Greek family that runs it are very nice and friendly. The fried seafood is the BEST anywhere though. I used to be a fried seafood cook, and a truly excellent fried seafood place that was also a fish market. I know fresh seafood and I know the difference between good fried food and the regular crap that most people think is good. This place has white or whitish yellow batter, not the brown, dingy stuff you get from the average place with old, dirty grease. Try this place and you will then know the difference between Excellent and nasty normal.
