We are regular year round customers. The reasons are: high quality fish served, oils in fried products are fresh and do not detract from the tasty fish. The beauty of Niantic Bay from the restaurant dining porch is a wonderful bonus. Service is good even...More

While there is a small, inside seating area, the majority of their tables are outside. Seafood cooked hot to order. Very small side order of slaw. Fried food a bit greasy tasting. Fried clams could ha e been done a bit more.
