I had the fish & onion rings and my wife had the blt. The fish was overcooked and the blt was awful, but the onion rings were OK.

The haddock was ok but the onion rings were floating in a puddle of grease. Awful. Great atmosphere outside on the water.

Picturesque old time roadside seafood shack! Fast and friendly service. Great lobster and crab rolls. Seating overlooking the inlet and river well worth a stop!

Now in its 73rd year, this outdoor eatery on the Bagaduce River still has absolutely the best, freshest, sweetest fried clams I have ever eaten. And the onion rings are really good also. Pick a nice cool day with a breeze and eat yourself silly!

Great (large) lobster roll. Spicier than others I had that week, and it was delicious. Beautiful view, lots of picnic tables, good place to give your dog a little run. Glad we went.

A fantastic lunch in a serene setting by the river, watching the tide coming back in. Great food, friendly service. The wait for the food is worth it. Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area.
