“Don't write home, just yet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2013

Been there many times. The food is just ordinary, even though they specialize in seafood only. Sometimes you catch a good bowl of chowder, but it's hit or miss. Everything is just average. Not a bad place, just regular food, regular service, regular atmosphere. The prices are slightly higher than average, because it is a popular place, and frequented by so many tourists. The locals just go there expecting nothing extraordinary. The tourists are either knowledgeable and disappointed, or never had seafood and just delighted! Go figure.

“Convience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 16, 2012

We had 3 grandchildren with on day trip. While walking the board walk looking for something they would enjoy we got handed a discount coupon and menu. Kids said they would try it. The place was better looking than a visit a few years back, and everything was clean. Kids enjoyed their meals, ours lacked anything special, just average in taste. Staff was helpful with taken and servicing order.

“Good overall meal but nothing to get excited over”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2012

We thought it was overpriced but then it is a holiday spot and it was peak time. The waitress was friendly and helpful and the food was of reasonable quality. Was nothing to get excited about.
