My husband and I had lunch there today and we were pleasantly surprised with how good everything was. Everything was cooked very well and we were served rather quickly. The waitress was very nice. We will definitely be back.

Baked scallops were tasty and waitress was quick and efficient. Nice for a quick dinner of seafood. Small older building with tough parking.

Very friendly place with excellent food. We started with clam chowder ( creamy and tasty with plenty of real clams) and crabcakes. For our entree we shared baked haddock with sea scallops. Atmosphere is 50's retro, reminds me of places by the shore in RI....More

No. There have been times where we've had to wait a little bit, but it has never been a problem being seated in a reasonable amount of time. Larger groups might need to wait a bit more if it's busy.
