Good seafood, felt like a chain restaurant even though many claimed it was a local place. Slow service for a group of ten.

Nice place, good food and friendly waitstaff. Ordered the Ipswich fried clams and they were a bit of a surprise. Seemed like fried oysters I've had there in the past and not like the Ipswich fried clams I've had there in the past.
