They offer fried food for a good price. I had shrimp, but it was popcorn shrimp and that isn't stated. I would have ordered something else had I known.

Great sea food and chicken nuggets . The best scallops around . Onion rings are homemade and yummy. They have large sea food platters enough for two people to share .

We were headed on an excursion and needed to find some dinner and a place that would be quick. The grand kids, my daughter and I each had something different. We were all full with no room for dessert!

This is a must go place. It is not on the water but conveniently on Route 1 in Wiscasset. While waiting in traffic a perfect place to have lunch. The haddock is wonderful along with all the other offerings.
