“The spoon doesn't quite stand up, but...”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

HAD to eat here after all the great reviews. Everything we had was very good, including the clam chowder. And it was thick - probably the most dense and clam- filled I've ever had. My wife had the fish and chips and LOVED them - and she's a fish and chips aficionado. I had the Coquille St. Jacques and it was very good. After many of the places we've been eating on this trip, the prices here were quite reasonable. Of note, also, was the staff: very personable, and Dane, our server, was hilarious! A great stop.

“Great food, nice atmosphere, but not very good service.”
Reviewed June 22, 2013 via mobile

Food here was AMAZING and the seafood was mostly local! Our server was a little slow and nonattentive, but the food and local beer on tap made the experience worth it.

Unexpected find...really good chowder and good food overall. Nice beer selection. Perfect for a casual "quick" dinner.

“Relaxing stop for lunch”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

My family stopped in for lunch. The food was very good the service was very friendly and also good. They did seem caught off guard by the volume of customers vs the staff they had. So stay was longer than it had to be but we were not in a rush. It worked for us.
