We had the lunch specials, mahi mahi ruben and the fish tacos. Sat by the window and loved it. The parking is a little tight.

Previously from New Bedford we make a point to visit Waterfront Grill and also Fathoms. Great seafood, service and atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and location interesting to a land lubber visiting a salty area. :-)
