Fen Yang does "traditional" Chinese-American food, and they do it right.
I grew up in this area and remember when there were many more places like this. All I can say is that I'm glad this one continues to thrive. This is your parents and grandparents Chinese food, in the best way.
They are not trying to be Chinatown or SF. If you expect that, you might feel they missed the mark. However, if you love spare ribs, fried rice, lo mein, General Gau's, etc. you are in for a treat. Very fresh ingredients, very aptly prepared. If you enjoy a good tropical cocktail, or just a well poured drink, you are in for an extra special treat.
There is a good sized bar area that is separate from the dining room. It's a nice little escape that you will find a number of local people enjoying on any given night. ( It's a scene straight out of "Cheers".) The dining room is very nice too, especially for larger parties and a more "family oriented" experience. (Unless you are a member of my family, like half this town…..) But no question a total stranger would also feel very comfortable here.
They also have a very good sushi bar. I'll admit that I am something of a sushi snob. I tend to prefer designated sushi restaurants for some reason. But their sushi is straightforward, extremely fresh, nicely presented and delicious. I've been enjoying it for years.
If you are new to town or a visitor, don't hesitate to check it out. It's a Marblehead fixture, for good reason.
