Great food at a great price! Recently I got the shrimp gumbo and shrimp Fra Diablo...loved it. The Fra Diablo had so many shrimp that I didn't think they were going to end. It was really good!

With a fresh seafood market right inside this place certainly has potential. The disappointment came in the prepared food. Had the Bouillabaisse soup and it was basically a salty broth with a few specs of fish in it. An insult to a true Bouillabaisse soup....More

I am there at least once a month whether to buy fish or sea food or to eat fish or sea food. When I am not in the mood to cook I will stop there to buy their delicious White Clam Chowder or Lobster Bisque....More

A think it was over priced for the small portions. Lobster bisque was amazing! Had fried haddock, crab cake and shrimp. Crab cake was ok but a little over seasoned and couldn't taste the crab. Fish was very bland. Probably would't visit again.
