We stopped at the outdoor area and got chowder in bread bowls. We took them back to our hotel and ate since it was so crowded in the area. It was very good and I would recommend this for a quick meal.

We bought a crab roll and shrimp roll. Both were lacking in flavor and had a bit too much mayo. I suggest you buy just one to share as the roll is quite large.

We felt unfortunately is was like a fast food place. We did enjoy the calamari but the other stuff was not to our taste so much fried and overcooked fish and seafood. Expensive for what it is but I suppose to be expected at fish and wharf

Steaming hot clam chowder in a sour dough bowl and a fresh lobster roll, what could be better for breakfast on a chilly May morning?
