We had a gift certificate so we went. Pleasant surprise as the food was excellent. Lots of choices for all appetites. We went with the haddock in beer batter. Jill was cheerful and professional waitress. Definitely will return for another meal

I love this place. Food is always yummy, never a bad meal. Yesterday I had the seafood platter(well I get this 95% of the time!) also the fried pickles. They also serve warm bread.

The fried seafood is very good, my wife had the clams and I had the baked stuffed haddock, the haddock was just OK, I've had a lot better. If we went again I would just get the fried seafood, it' very good but still doesn't compare to Bayhaven.

I Eat here about once a month. The food options are more than just seafood if you're not in the mood. The fried pickles are delicious too! :) The atmosphere is very laid back. Very comfy homey feeling. I've never had a bad experience with the staff. Always pleasant. Always friendly. I Will keep coming back :)

Love this place, it's our families favorite ! I travel from AZ to NH annually and must eat here at least 2 or 3 visits. Excellent variety of seafood, both fried and baked. Fresh salads, great desserts. For me to give 5 stars it must be good as I'm critical about food. Haddock Au Gratin is a favorite. I ate... More

Been here quiet a few times, food is always hot and delicious. Had the Sa Adams beer battered fish and chips, was ok, personally prefer the regular batter. Wishing i got the country fried chicken, that one always hits the spot

We wanted some good seafood but we're hesitant to eat here because all the other reviews talked about fried food. We wanted Lobster rolls. We stopped anyway, and the our non fried options were also delicious. The lobster rolls were generously filled with fresh lobster meat but sparingly garnished with mayo, celery, and lettuce. The sweet delicate taste of the... More

We've visited this excellent seafood restaurant for several years, while enroute to Maine and the return trips as well. Food and service is consistently wonderful.

One of the most excellent seafood restaurants in the area - and there are many. We have a great menu that includes the smaller "Mates" portions and a senior menu that includes a drink and dessert. Our founder Howie Seckendorf always believed that everyone should enjoy going out to eat! Fast and Fresh Take Out available.
