Doz clams for $8 were good, haddock sandwich not so good, had very little fish in it, had to remove the raw unions. Clam chowder was great.Very friendly staff.

Lovely lobster roll(just lobster and butter) on a toasted brioche bun. The owner knew we were from out of town. She gave us free smoked mussel and dessert samples. I would go back there in a heart beat.
