Stopped in for a take out order. First time I've visited since their remodel. There are several wall mounted menus with a wide variety of entrees. I got a container New England clam chowder. It had a good ratio of clams to potatoes. It was...More

I stopped in about two weeks ago to have my favorite fish fry. I was very disappointed with the experience. The prices increased, which I expected with a complete renovation, but the food is not as good. The tarter sauce was watery and lacked flavor....More

Started reconstruction last year. Customers are waiting anxiously for a reopen date. Call first! It is always worth the visit. They do take credit cards now.

This has been a favorite of mine for over 30 years! The fish is always delicious and reasonably priced. The place is small we always do take out.

We love the dinners and the fish sandwich is the best! You couldn't ask for a nicer bunch of people and more delicious food. We've been going here for years and love it.
