If you want good seafood, this is the place to go. I've been there many times and it hasn't let me down. A nice casual atmosphere and great service!

One of the busiest and best known fried seafood shacks on the NH Seacoast. Plan on a wait, especially in summer. Full bar upstairs and dining room indoors as well as takeout window in summer.
