Had Fried Clams for dinner during the last visit there. I'd say they were better than average. Not the best I've ever had but very respectable.

Tops for waterside fishing boat ambiance. Food fresh and service attentive. Menu of unexceptional choices. I'm Not sure I'd go again. Legal seafoods should do a branch to kick up the kitchen standards.

Well , I don't have the prices memorized but I think you might pay a dollar or two over what you would pay at a sports bar type of place. I am sure you know that a Fishermans Platter is just about the highest priced seafood... More
