Small in size but with a big heart and great skill. Three of us had lunch here and literally everything we had was terrific: perfectly seasoned New England style clam chowder, crisp & fresh-tasting cod, ingenious "black and white" catfish, sweet and succulent crab cake,...More

For the 3 of us: we liked the outdoor al fresco dining, decent food overall but way too small & way overpriced, left still hungry... We enjoyed 2 orders of the Red Fish (one Blackened and one regular - get the blackened) but at $21...More

Came here with friends. It's a small place with only three booths for 4 each. We had 5 and he sat on a stool. There is lots more bar seating. The menu is purely fish and not huge. I had blackened grouper and shrimp poppers....More
