Wow! This is the place for local seafood. Boats coming into and out of harbor, mooring just outside of the restaurant and bringing their catch to market. Can’t get closer to the source without getting on the fishing boats. I had seafood chowder. Off the...More

The restaurant was very accommodating for a group of 12 on short notice for our Habitat for Humanity group. The view overlooks the incoming boats at the loading dock and the tidal expansion area. Check the board for specials with good prices.

We just discovered this place about 3 years ago. It wasn't very busy, now there is a waiting line. The Haddock and lobster chowder are the best. Both in size and taste.
