BYO, which is a pain, but to be honest, the best fish restaraunt I've been to in the States. The tuna in soy, ginger and wasabe was what you'd expect in a gourmet gaff asking four times the price

The sides are those you can choose with your entree.
I like summer restaurants like these...
There is a dining room, but if the line is too long..grab a seat at the bar when one opens and join in the conversation. It's a lively happening place, with lots of fresh fish entrees to choose from.
I don't know anything about clams or shellfish, but my friends enjoyed their dishes.
They have shore places and they dine here frequently.
For me, the lively conversation and flounder entree with 2 sides will make me return next summer.
It is true, this is a hidden gem.

We go several times a summer, mostly to sit at the counter for some raw clams- best you can get! And soup, also great! Service is always incredible fast and it's fun to BYOB and sit and wait for a spot while talking to other patrons. Always a good time!

Good seafood, nothing special about the preparation but generally fresh and tasty and very reasonably priced. No AC and long waits at dinnertime. For lunch there's generally no wait but many specials are only offered at dinnertime. Ultra casual.

This place is a hidden gem. They serve the best clam chowder outside of New England. The clams were so tender and corn was so fresh that the kernels burst with flavor in every bite. I just finished my cup and want to order more.
