We were travelling through the area and saw the high recommendation for the restaurant on TripAdvisor so we stopped. It was very easy to get to from I-95. It's located on the harbor and has a large parking lot and outdoor seating (too cold for us though). The restaurant is unique and fun. Seating allows for views of the water... More

We wanted to eat with a view. It was winter trip coming home from Mystic Seaport. We try to break up our trips so they become two short trips rather than one long one. Well we sat by the windows looking out over the water but too far to the land side to have a good view. Try to make... More

I'm from this area, living in NJ, and I head to the shore for fried seafood when i'm here. The whole clams were good. Fries not great. Cole slaw had a weird taste. Portion size is what I expect in NJ, which is to say not a good value. $76 for three people, no cocktails, very pricey for this meal.... More

Great location. End of story. I can't stand a place that tells you how great their food is. This is that place. We hand drain or fish on bakers paper is what they crow, yet the fish I got could not possibly have been any greasier. It was a total fail for us. I would not waste my money on... More

This is a great location on the water. It is a very large building which I feel takes away from the homey atmosphere of the other two locations. The food was very good and our server Krystal was very attentive.

We had lunch here a few times, the food was always great and the price was reasonable. The staff was nice and prompt and the view of the harbor was great.

The service was great, from when I entered and greeted by hostess to my waitress, Laurie. I ordered half dozens clams and half dozens oysters. In addition, an order of steamed mussels. Hands down to the first ones, the oysters and clams were so fresh and delicious. I think they were $10.50 each dish, with the exception of the mussels.... More

Originally from the New England area I know good seafood. My sister brought me here to enjoy the best of the best, as she put it. I couldn't see much of the area as it was pitch black out, so my mind imagined someone was out back reaching into the ocean plucking out what we all ordered. Two people in... More
