“Wonderful Seafood”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

This can be a crowded place and is not particularly fancy. Perhaps that accounts for the few reviews indicating a lack of satisfaction. It's really difficult for me to believe that it is about the quality of the food. If the food wasn't so good, it wouldn't be so crowded. My wife and I just ate here on a Sat. night when the whole area was very busy with events. We were lucky to get a table after only a short wait. But the service was still very good and the seafood superb. It was really gourmet with non-gourmet prices. It also includes a lot in addition to the entrée. The portions are very large. We have only ever had excellent seafood here, although there are other landlubber items on the menu, such as duck, chicken and steak.

“Great food!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Neighborhood restaurant. Sat in the bar. The food was very good. My husband was very excited that they had whole belly clams as an appetizer--great idea! I had the appetizer mussels--they were delicious. The mussels should have been served with some kind of bread to dip into the delicious broth! Server was very nice and was very good at personalizing her service to us. However, it was quite busy and she was really moving and happy that we were not in a rush, because we were in the restaurant for quite some time. Prices were quite reasonable. Will definitely go again this week since we are on vacation in town.

“Horrible food and service”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is not a recommended place, the food is substandard (bland, especially the vegetables), and the service was harried and inefficient.

“Lobster”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

We had the lobster dinner special - delicious and priced right. We were there in the late fall so perhaps it could cost more in the high season but we loved it.
