“great value, no frills, tasty food”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

have been coming to point pleasant for years and somehow missed this place. nothing much to look at, but the food was fresh and delish! some outdoor seating. prompt and friendly service. and the value can't be beat. had the fisherman's stew and a bottle of water for under $20. and the portion was substantial. it's down the road from two other popular restaurants, and they charge at least twice as much. this place is apparently a fisherman's co-op, so it's nice to be able to support not only a local business but the people who go out and bring in the catch.

“SOOOOO FRESH”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

This is a market and restaurant. They have two locations that are equally excellent. The food tastes like it just came from the sea...which it did in most cases. The restaurant are not much to look at and you will be served on paper plates or the pan the meal was cooked in, but you will eat it all! It is so good that the paper plates and market look with make it fun!

This place is fabulous. Good food and worth the wait in line. It is BYOB though, didn't know that when we got there.

“Casual and comfortable”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Overall this is a good restaurant, but there are a few things that need improving. Just to say the fish is fresh is great, but they don't do anything different with the fish. It's alot of fried fish, and really under-seasoned. The shrimp cocktail came out lukewarm and tasteless, but fresh (some were unpeeled on the plate). The crab cake was a wad of something the size of a golf ball and deep fried, so much so that we had to wrap it in a napkin and squeeze the grease out of it..not so good. The other things on the menu were typical..stuffed flounder, stuffed shrimp, fish and chips, very unoriginal and that doesn't show case the freshness of the fish when everything is fried. I would not say this is the best place around, just good enough for a weeknight when you don't want to cook.

“value for price”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Knowing how fresh the fish is helps make the dining experience wonderful. I like the outdoor dining with BYOB for those who want a glass of wine or beer with dinner. The menu is varied and the food is excellent.
