We bought a crab from a fisherman on a boat near this restaurant. I heard that this restaurant would cook the crab for us. But we needed to go to a "Market" which was just in a backyard of this restaurant in person, even though the market and the restaurant looked sharing their kitchen. Moreover, the man in Market told... More

Great food at reasonable prices. Fresh seafood. I have eaten at this establishment many times over the past 5 years after birding trips at sea. Fast and reliable quality of food.

The seafood was so fresh it must have come off that boat that morning. Waitress and service were exceptional. Lots of families with alternate food choices for kids.

We were at the Seafood Company both at the market and at the restaurant. The market is very small but with delicious fresh fish. We took seabass and scallops and both were absolutely amazing. We came back a couple of times for take-away. We ordered fantastic clam chowders and average crab cakes. A good spot in Princeton!

The Plantation had been closed for a couple days when they opened because of a car show. The crab/salad was very sparse on seafood which surprised me because there is a fish market attached. The staff was very pleasant.

Great service and food! We shared a small portion of fish and chips and a crab cake sandwich. Both excellent. Fish batter was crispy and just the right thickness. Crab cake sandwich was flavorful and generous with a tasty coleslaw in it. Outside seating area was clean and the server brought a water bowl out for our dogs!

Great seafood - plus much more. Interesting place. Good for leisurely dining and kick-back w/adult beverages. Locals/indigenous-natives provide for terrific people-watching. Been coming here for decades - consistent, always fun.

The food here was great! The pesto oysters were excellent. I had the vegetarian tacos, thank you for offering a vegetarian dish! They were very good and had a good sauce on them. My friend had the crab pasta and he said it was excellent. I like that they serve beer in cold glasses, big plus in my book. The... More
