Nice setting, nice views, fresh seafood. Menu is inexpensive. Food is average. Nice service, was busy when I was there and got everything quickly. Server was good. If you are not looking for a gourmet place and are on a budget, this would work well for you.

I seriously would fly up just for the clam chowder. The view off the wharf is magnificent. What a great find!

Went here with a friend this past Saturday night. It was winding down but it was 9:30 and they close at 10pm during the off season so I can't wait to come back when its warm.

We sat at the bar which was pretty much empty just a couple of people at the other end. Both bartenders were very nice and greeted us immediately. We ordered calamari and coconut shrimp - which we both enjoyed very much. Very fresh, very tasty and very quick to serve. We only stayed for a quick bite and drink again they close early but by no means did we feel rushed. The dinner menu looked great and I look forward to returning and spending more time here.

Thanks!

The setting is really good.....and the restaurant's best feature is its low to moderate prices. There is nothing to remark on re. the food as it was average, period. I was surprised though to see few local seafood lunches on the menu.... I expected more . If you want a view and an average lunch without feeling you've been taken in by a tourist spot, then this is the place for you. I think it would be very nice in the summer outside by the water. Wish I could say more...but that's all there is.

I arrived almost at the closing time but was received very well at this charming restaurant. One of the best clam chowders, ever, in a rainy night in New Bedford. Also, excellent fish.
In the following day, very soft calamari and again, a delicious food.
Problem? Closes very early: 9 p.m.

Dear Michel,

Thanks for the great review! I know that 9:00 may seem early, and our hours should be changing soon as the sun sticks around later in the day. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meal enough to come back two days in a row! I hope that you are able to make the trip from Brazil to join us again, soon!

Thanks, again,

Justin
