Really such a great place to pick out a fresh lobster and have it freshly prepared and served with delicious clam chowder and corn and potatoes. Limited seating but it was not a problem for us. This was the best lobster I had the entire...More

I'd never have anyone visit us on ACK and let them leave without going to Sayles. Fresh fish, cheap prices, huge portions for take-out food, and the staff is so helpful if you're unsure what to get.

Love it. Small seating area. Great to take out. You can get a lobster dinner to take out or buy fresh fish and cook it yourself. I bought cooked lobster for $40 a pound, fish sandwich to go was $7.95 - compared to my $28...More

Me and a few friends stopped one night. We had to wait a while for our food but it was definitely worth it. The outside seating is great for a quick bite. All our meals were fantastic and for the amount of food you get,...More
