We went on Friday July 21, 2017 for dinner. We came in and a woman who seemed to be either the manager or maybe the owner handed us the menus and told us to seat ourselves. Really? You don't have the service skills to show...More

The Fried Haddock and Haddock Creole were our dinner choices, Both were pretty good. but the Clam Chowder really destroyed the eating experience. Will have second thoughts on going back, especially with Thurstons Lobster Pound just around the corner.
