Don't need to drive 2 hours to get good seafood it's here. Wonderful seafood dishes that are great. Shrimp,Crabs,Fish. Salads are a special treat. And appetizers are great and you get good portion's are good for all.

Had been craving New England chowder but this was full of some sort of thickener--not half as good as the refrigerated clam chowder at Trader Joe's Stick with broiled fish--they use too much breading on the fried fish.

We stopped by for lunch on our way to Orlando. They have lunch specials for every day of the week, so we enjoyed our gorgeous basket with fried pollock, and homemade fries for $8. The service was fast, and food fresh. Would definitely come back!
