Superb steamed clams. The only one's we have had that were this good were in Portugal.

Very small, informal place. If we were going to be around longer we would have loved to sample their orher items which looked great.

This is a small building with only a few tables. I arrived and was told a one hour wait. Guests leaving assured me the food was well worth the wait. Walked around town while waiting. The wait is well worth it.

The welcoming friendly staff makes it an experience in itself. This is my all time favorite place for seafood. No chowder on the menu. You would not want to waste your time on chowder when you can experience so many other great new and exciting dishes.

Don't miss out on giving this place a try. Go with a friend and share. Portions are huge.

The majority of Trip Advisor reviews were raves, but one negative review from just before our visit had me a little concerned. The place is tiny and decor dates & kitsch-y. I really wanted fresh seafood though, and ventured in. We were reassured by the positive comments overheard from other diners, an made our orders for the crab dinner and clam linguine. We were Not disappointed! The clams were small, succulent and very plentiful with a few shrimp for good measure in a garlic wine broth on al-dente linquine.
The crab dinner was exactly as pictured by an earlier reviewer. Stwamed to perfection and served hot alongside really lovely steamed vegetables, salad of hand-chopped (NOT bagged) salad and fresh fruit, artfully arranged. It was well worth the market price as they did all the messy shelling work! Don't let the rare hater scare you off! Keep this place in business!

Our neighbors told us about this wonderful place, so we gave it a try, and are so glad we did. We arrived early as recommended, and were able to choose a nice cozy table near the window. The place is so small and quaint, it gives you the opportunity to visit with folks at the neighboring tables if so desired. The wait person is also the owner, her personality and presentation were warm and delightful. The food was fresh, healthy and tasty and came to us in generous portions. The drinks and bread were perfect too. We had a great experience and will be back!

This cozy little seafood restaurant was a great find. The Dungeness crab dinner was fantastic. The fruit vegetable salad had more variety than any I've ever eaten. I wanted to have an authentic local delicacy and was not disappointed. We would definitely like to eat here again.
