Four of us met here for a mini-reunion. We probably occupied a table for 2-1/2 hours and had no headaches from anyone.

So-so dishes: Fried clams were small and overcooked; Fish and chips was just okay; Clam chowder was watery with sparse clams; I gave it a C-.

Great dishes: New Bedford scallops were outstanding; Flounder wrapped around seasoned crabmead-packed corn bread was to die for. Beyond outstanding, perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked.

Tables are a good size, and service was excellent.

Prices here reflect the fact that the restaurant has a view of Horseneck Beach and is usually visited by vacationers without a budget.

Must be noted: It appears as though there is a substantial air pressure difference between inside and outside. This caused the inner entrance door to SLAM several times as the pressure caused it to swing wildly shut. On one of those incidents it caused a very large tall furnishing to fall, hitting a diner at the first table on the left (after entering). At least a dozen people witnessed this, and took special precautions when they exited via that door.

My husband wanted to get a lobster roll while we were staying in Massachusetts! He read a review on this restaurant and decided to try it. The lobster roll bun was stuffed with large pieces of sweet tender delicious lobster meat and came with your choice of French fries or cole slaw and drawn butter or mayo. A bit pricy at $22 but worth the price.

Food and service are great at this ocean view restaurant. In the summer, you can sit outside. Of course, the seafood dishes are outstanding. Many locals eat here.

We called ahead and asked if they did take out orders and were told yes. When we arrived at 11:15am they said they were just getting the last breakfast orders out and it would be about 15 minutes before they could take a lunch order. We were fine with that, however it was 45 mins before our order was rung up and 12:30pm when we received our cold sandwiches. We were told they were still delivering Breakfast orders, since the wait staff was hustling, the kitchen must be slow. Had they been honest about the wait we would have happily gone elsewhere. In fairness the lobster role was great and the turkey club was average.

We've come here twice, both nice days both times a half hour wait to get a table. The first time we moved on elsewhere, this second time (Tuesday evening at around 6:30p.m), we waited. Waiting area outside has a nice view. Staff were very busy but we got a table near the door looking out at the ocean. We had the sweet potato fries appetizer (shared) and I had baked acrid eith wild rice and potato salad, she had fish and chips. Malt vinegar on the table (the right thing with fish and chips if you are British). Both meals very good. We added a slice of rhubarb and strawberry pie to go ĺI just had it eith my breakfast) also good. The family has been in business here to 43 years the menu says, so they know what they are doing. Please don't come here I don't want my half hour wait to get longer!
