I went this past Saturday for the first time in 10 years. I used to go often for years. The food was horrible! The seafood chowder was definitely old and tasteless. The lobster roll was one of the worst I have had. Too much mayo...More

I was craving whole belly clams while visiting Hampton. I saw this road side restaurant and gave it a try. I ordered the small ($13.95) and there was plenty for 1 person, they were hot and not an over amount of batter.

Always get the fried scallops and they really are great! It certainly is a bit pricey, but most seafood is. However, $11+ for a large fry??? Are you kidding me? And when I asked why they were so expensive, I received a very rude response,...More

This place is always a go to stop.The seafood chowder is delicious. Comes in a lighter broth and loaded with all kind of seafood. The fried scallops and haddock are also excellent with coating that is not too heavy. Lobster roll is good too.

Don't go! Go to Markeys or Browns for better seafood. I know the seafood chowder I had was old and tasteless.
