The first place we tried for dinner this past Sunday night closed their dining room early, so we ended up here, which was a happy accident. My teenage daughter and I had a lovely meal outside. Friendly, fast service...food nicely prepared and came out quickly....More

Found this restaurant while on vacation in Hampton beach last year. We were looking for a nice sit down dinner away from the strip. Everything was excellent. Decided to stop back this for a nice lunch on our way home from Maine. Excellent once again....More

I normally really like this place but my lunch yesterday was surprisingly underwhelming. I ordered a sesame chicken salad. What came was lots of large chunks of iceberg lettuce with a sprinkling of finely chopped cucumber topped by three good sized pieces of chicken breast...More

My first introduction to the lobster stew was at the Hampton Seafood festival. So when I came back to visit, I made a point of going to this restaurant to have it again. Unlike chowder, its thicker , tastier and a bit of a bite....More

They use fresh, local seafood. And it's typically great. Regarding the shrimp, they are without a doubt frozen because the only native shrimp in these waters are tiny, and only available during late Fall and Winter.
