This restaurant was convenient to our hotel and the food was pretty good, but what stood out for us was our very nice waitress. I would go there again.

We all had lobster, 2 lobster rolls and 1 steamed. It was excellent! Generous cocktails, friendly and prompt service. Probably the best restaurant in town with a nice waterfront view of the fishing boats.

Gave it three tries. Food quality was less than average, service poor and pricey. Not sure if the management knows what type of restaurant and/or clientele it wants to achieve. Bar area was noisy.

Well , I don't have the prices memorized but I think you might pay a dollar or two over what you would pay at a sports bar type of place. I am sure you know that a Fishermans Platter is just about the highest priced seafood... More
