Found this quaint and friendly place on Trip Advisor. I have fried shrimp and my boyfriend got a seafood trio and both were delicious!

If you want great food at reasonable prices, you should definitely try this! If you like the laid back, casual atmosphere of "Key West" or "Matlacha" type eateries, you will love New England Moorings! We found the food very reasonably priced and absolutely delicious! The wait staff and the owner, Al, are over the top to ensure you have a... More

Went to New England Moorings to check out the food after reading reviews on trip adviser. It was st. Patrick's day so did not know what to expect with crowds. May not have been the owners preference but I think everyone else was out having green beer and other trimmings elsewhere. We like that. We had a drink at the... More

We stopped in on a whim at 4:10 p.m., ten minutes after the restaurant opened. We sat out on the patio and enjoyed the breeze off the nearby water. The menu is limited, but delicious. There is no kids' menu, but we had no problem getting buttered noodles for the little one. The restaurant has toys on hand to entertain... More

The Moorings is a restaurant with a New England owner/operator who strives to provide a family dining experience with food choices prepared the way they are from new England. Not ever having been there, i don't know how close it is, but the food is pretty good usually. The restaurant is a bit dated, but the prices are reasonable and... More

Description
A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
