I am on a shrimp alfredo kick this winter (see my review of the Offshore in Rockport) and the version here is even more decadent and generous. Good value, including the free atmosphere of loyal locals who keep themselves and the server entertained. One good...More

I’ve fallen for haddock! The fried haddock basket with fresh cut fries was delicious. I tried the fish chowder, which was great. Lovely little cafe in a lovely town. Can’t wait to visit again!

Just your every day decent priced small town cafe. Nothing special except small town vibe and real old school waitresses. Love going there to just relax and unwind and be simple again.

My husband and I went on a Wed. night in early December. The specials looked good but we ended up having Baked Stuffed Haddock and Scallop & Broccoli Alfredo. The Haddock was stuffed full of crab stuffing and arrived quickly and hot. The Scallop Alfredo...More
