We decided on this place because of the time of day and our schedule. Very generous portions of food. My husband had the fried haddock dinner and onion rings and enjoyed it very much. Very large portion as it should be! My lobster was cooked...More

WAY WAY WAY too expensive. Prices are astronomically higher than any other seafood joint in my experience and it isn't anything special. The service is never that great either. I strongly recommend basically any other seafood place other than this one.
