Nice people that serve surf & turf. You can get a quick sandwich or a full meal. The pricing is good. Servings are big. They have counter service or waitress service.

Unfortunately, I've wasted my money at this restaurant three times - I'm done! Yesterday (April 7th) I stopped in around 6:30 (busy dinner time) order the fried shrimp platter. The tray was dirty, no utensils, a few of the shrimp tasted foul and the fries...More

I agree with all of the reviews about how excellent the seafood is here. What no one is mentioning is their fries. They are made fresh with real potatoes. Not frozen. Almost no one does that anymore. Not even expensive restaurants.

If you like fried seafood, this is your place. Being that it is a seafood place, it can be a bit pricy but large portions. No servers! You place your order then find a table and wait for your number to be called.

This is a great laid back seafood restaurant. You know it's going to be good when the amazing smell hits you the second you walk in the door. We had the lobster roll platters. They were delicious. They came with fries and really great coleslaw....More
