Great food, wonderful service and reasonable price. Fried clan strips were the best I've ever had. Soups all made fresh.

This is a wonderful place to get a great seafood dinner. Sunday's offer dinner with soup or salad starting early in the day. We enjoyed the fish and chips, crab cakes, fried oysters and baked cod dinners. Wonderful service!

Originally, this restaurant was a cafeteria style fish place. But several years ago it changed to a full-service seafood restaurant. Of course you can get dishes other than fish. The freshness and tasty recipes of the food is outstanding. It is a bit pricey, but...More

I ordered a variety of things for myself and my wife. All were ok. I liked the RI clam chowder and the shrimp. My wife had a fish dish and is was good as well. The service was slow though.
