The food is good if your wait-staff can hear what you order. The acoustics are loud in this place even when not that many people are there. The fish is fresh, chowders are excellent as well.

Stopped here for dinner just passing through. I had cup of the seafood chowder....best I've ever had! The rest of the dinner was good as well, and they had a live band playing. I'd definitely stop here again!!

We were driving through, and this was my pick to get take out to eat at our final destination. I'm so happy we did! The lobster rolls are packed with lobster, and just the right amount of seasoning, not too soggy or anything. Also tried...More

Great food and selection - my wife and daughter had lobster rolls and I had the fish tacos. The steamers were also large and plump. Having a draft Monkeyfist for $4 was the icing on the cake. Our waitress Emily was attentive and friendly. We...More

This place has very, very good seafood. The clam chowder had a smoky bacon hint to it, pieces of bacon too. The clams were very tender and flavorful. One of us had the fish tacos, and it was not fried, just really nice pieces of...More
