Don't miss this place. We had a fabulous impromptu lunch, he opened just for us as he usually only serves dinner this late in the season. And we are so grateful!

Our group went 3 times for the clams. The corn fritters are really good, as was the lobster roll. The sauces come in little plastic containers, - the only thing that may not be fresh

I primarily use this for take out, and you cannot get better, fresher fish and seafood. Pete, and the rest of the staff, are friendly. I love their crab cakes, crab gumbo, they will fry me a piece of fish to take home, I am here at least once a week. Yes, the restaurant area is not the best, but, for take home, and freshness, they are terrific.

Ordered take out. Everything was fresh. Owner actually knew what "Dry Scallops" (not processed with water plumping chemicals) were. Note to owner, inform customers that your food is not processed, is chemical free and not farm raised at the beginning of the order, not after. Yes, the prices are slightly over priced, but the food was excellent. The Kelchner's (Dublin, PA product) horseradish products are the best and available and at the restaurant. Is the owner a little quirky, yes, but, hey, who doesn't appreciate a fish monger with a couple of quirks? No rudeness about him just friendly.

Talk about fresh, this place is a dining room attached to a seafood market! We ordered a sampler platter that wa more than enough for the two of us. The food was tasty and the service was pleasant. They don't have a liquor license but allow you to BYOB.
