We generally have Fish and Chips, the best around, but this time I wanted to try something else. The luncheon special was Tempura Cod with sticky rice and spinach. It was excellent. Really big piece of Cod. Never had Tempura before, glad I tried it.

I had the lobster Ruben which was excellent. My wife had a well portioned lobster roll. Plenty of beers on tap all and all I recommend going. Only negative is that the dining room was cold so I dropped hem a star.

Great local hangout with a great menu! The bucket was my favorite - whole lobster 1 1/4 pound at least, couple pounds of clams, tasty linguisa (Portuguese sausage) and a vegetable to boot!
