We have been there twice in the last 4 days-that should tell you something! We have sampled the halibut, the sea bass and the clam chowder with a shrimp cocktail. All were delicious!! The restaurant is funky casual and if you want a beer you will buy it next door...but the servers are friendly and the food is great. You... More

We walked across from the holiday inn to the village plaza and we discovered Pelly's where we enjoyed two unadulterated seafood dinners. They were cooked simply grilled served with fresh salad and rice and a choice of dressing. It's a no frills restaurant which explains the value for money . I highly recommend this restaurant.

We did take out as it was super close to our house. Great value. Both kinds of clam chowder were amazing.

This us a great fish market but the dinners are just ok. Both fish dinners were over cooked and the rice was dry.

Decided to try dinner here, we usually love the meals that come from the markets with fresh fish. We weren't disappointed. We tried the halibut and sea bass and both were delicious. So was the Manhattan clam chowder! Large portion of rice and salad comes with the meal and we were stuffed. Great value for great food. Cute little place... More

We loved the casual atmosphere-no pretense and they know who their audience is. You place your meal order at the counter and they bring it out to your table. They'll find you whether your inside or out. If you want anything stronger to drink than a soda, head next door to Primo's Pizza. Keep in mind they close at 8:00.

This is really a fish market that also serves meals. Not much to look at, but the food is fabulous - and at a very reasonable price! We had some of the best grilled halibut we've ever eaten - served with rice and a wonderful salad for just over $15. My husband also had some terrific clam chowder. You can... More

Pelly's is my absolute favorite lunch spot. Sit outside this little fish market and enjoy fish brought in right off the boat! Cooked your way, right there. I love the snapper sandwich with avo on grilled sourdough bread. Yum! They serve it with a tasty coleslaw and I sneak over & grab a Starbucks while I wait. It's easy, breezy,... More

If you want the best in the area this is it. You can ask in advance too and they can get it. Excellent Tuna, Salmon, white fish and great chowders.
