It comes with five pieces of chicken, fries and coleslaw. I gave the coleslaw to my husband and ate two pieces of chicken and a good lot of the fries, brought the remainder home... More

The food and service is excellent. Busy at lunch time but the wait is never long and worth it. The servers have the down home touch and epitomize why Waves is a must visit on the South Shore.

Stopped by here today for a late lunch. Despite a rather ordinary exterior in a kind of strip mall, the food was excellent. We all had seafood with various side dishes. Nothing was greasy and everything tasted fresh! Great to know that this place exists. There's a lot on the menu besides seafood. The lies looked damned good.

Over the past year or so have noticed the batter on the fish has become more crispy but still very good except the other day when my daughter and I was in a quarter of her piece of fish was so crispy it was hard as a rock and uneatable.

Thank you for submitting your review. We are sorry to hear about your experience. We certainly wish that you would have identified your batter situation, with the waitstaff, at the time you encountered it. They would have instantly replaced it for you to ensure that you are absolutely satisfied with your meal. When people choose to dine with us, we... More
