With all the great reviews, maybe I expected too much. Our food was just okay. Portions were small and it wasn't as inexpensive as touted. Coleslaw came in a cup you might get condiments in. Fries were good. Only bright spot was the Shrimp Avocado...More

Stopped by this place today because it was close to doctor's office. After today I will make this the destination. Fried clam po-boy was great. Fish tacos absolutely terrific. If it wasn't raining would have gone back for dinner.

You want it, they have it. Hot dogs - yes, but also everything from ice cream to barbecue, fish plates to pepper steak, fried clams to onion rings. And, to say the least - all delicious.

I was surprised when we pulled up outside here, it's not so much a restaurant but more a food truck with a few outdoor seats. However, the food really is great. My husband had the BBQ and said it was really good. I had a...More

Great fun eating hot dogs, hamburgers, fish sandwiches at picnic table under a thatched roof. I love coming here when I visit the area. It's SO casual, tropical and vacation like.

Called ahead for pulled pork sandwich and sweet tea. Totally yum. Wish there were more dessert choices. Please bring on pie! You can tell this place is authentic by the smoker going right outside. Actually there is no inside!

We pride ourselves on making everything fresh to order. We make homemade Chili, Chowder, Baked Beans, Coleslaw, Mango Salsa, BBQ Sauces (Sweet, Spicy and White!), Chipotle Mayo, Burgers, Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce, Cajun Sauce...In other words - FRESH INGREDIENTS = AWESOME FOOD! We have our own large smoker which we daily use to smoke our Baby Back Ribs, Whole Chickens, Brisket and Boston Butts (for our Pulled Pork). Our seafood is delivered to us twice a week including Clams from Ipswich, Mass (Whole Bellies and Strips), Lobster Meat from Maine, Gulf Grouper & Shrimp!
