Loved this place! Wasn't fancy but it was sure good. Loved the shrimp coleslaw. My husband's fish was hot and delishous. He said it couldn't have been better. I had the shrimp basket (go figure) and it was wonderful also.

I love love The Shrimp Basket. Their coleslaw is the best...it has tiny shrimp in it. Their clams were very fresh and large..soft and flavorful. The shrimp was large and not over cooked. I can not wait to go back!
