“Best crab cakes ever eaten”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

Ordered the crab cakes and they were the best I have ever had. Others in the group ordered the halibut burger, fish and chips and clam strips and we all agreed that we had picked the best place in town. The service was great, the food was excellent and the price was good - for that I can use a plastic fork.

“just OK”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

Everything is fried. I ordered oysters assuming they would be raw on the half shell but when they were served they were breaded and fried on a bed of fries. I was really disappointed. It isn't really a restaurant type of thing, you go to a side table and pick up little paper packets of salt and pepper and plastic forks and so forth.

“Fish”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Everything is fried except the clam chowder. Food was very good but, it would have been nice to have food that wasn't deep fried.

“Great Fish & Chips”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

This is the second time we've eaten here and were impressed with both visits. It was a crowded holiday weekend, so we were braced for slow service. But the order came through relatively fast (before I was halfway through my IPA.) Cod and halibut fish and chips orders were perfectly cooked. It's not a cheap place, but the food and service were great. We sat on the front patio on a sunny day and watched the fleet come in - very nice.
