“Re-visiting a favorite restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

My husband and I stopped at this restaurant on Friday early afternoon before the dinner hour. It was empty so we had our choice of tables to sit at. Usually in the past it's been always almost filled to capacity. We ordered the specials a cup of chowder and fish and chips that came with a tiny container of coleslaw. We loved the chowder, the fish and chips, the coleslaw was passable (I'm a critic because I happen to like my own better, but this wasn't bad). They have a Nautical look and have just added a Tv for those who like to watch it ..being on "Mute" it's not distracting. The waitstaff has always been efficient and courteous, and pleasant ..always asking if everything is ok..Our bill came when we said we were finished with our meal. I have heard negative reviews about this restaurant but always like to "see for myself" and in this incident we were not unhappy but pleased because in the past we always enjoyed coming here. The price for the special was $8.99 not counting beverage so I don't consider it exhorbitant but reasonable..some of the other entrees are a little pricey ..clams, scallops etc. but I believe it's supply and demand and at different times of the year there are rises because of the economy. So before you make a choice whether it be negative or positive ...give this place a try..in my opinion you won't be dissappointed. This restaurant has won awards of the best seafood voted by the people in the past. This location is off the main thoroughfare and the view from the windows is the construction of the new high school and of the cars passing by..not necessarily the view that some would prefer but for people watchers it's fine.

“There is a good reason they have been there a long time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Not modern looking but the food has been consistenty good. Just what you expect when there are so many regulars. I make a point of stopping in for the seafood when possible. These two times the food was true to form - good as always. The staff is friendly also. They could have brought the check a little sooner

“Horrible not worth the money,We will never go there again”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2012

The calamari was mostly batter and greasy , The baked scallops were over cooked and dry
The baked stuffed haddock consisted of a small piece of fish with some nasty gravy with a blob of stuffing dropped on top the gravy on the potatoes tasted like bouillon cubes. When I mentioned to the waitress she said sorry and just kept walking by, totally indifferent to our unhappy experience it took forever for her to come and get our bill so we could cash out even though the restaurant was not busy

“INCREDIBLE!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

There is very little selection for seafood restaurants in the south shore area.. this is one little place with big portions. The prices are cheap for what you get, and I can't stress enough how wonderful the service is. They are always helpful and kind and always smiling. I haven't had a bad meal yet and I've been here quite a few times. The chowder is soooooo yummy!! The Kale soup is just perfection!! The seafood platter could feed you for a week..(ok, I'm exagerating a bit) but it's huge! They always offer you fresh made corn bread/butter with your meal. They have a great menu with something for everyone. A nice family atmosphere. It's nothing great on the inside.. but everything great on your plate. You will NOT be disappointed!
