This place has very, very good seafood. The clam chowder had a smoky bacon hint to it, pieces of bacon too. The clams were very tender and flavorful. One of us had the fish tacos, and it was not fried, just really nice pieces of...More

Nothing fancy about this place, but comfortable and clean. Food was average, service good, prices average. The bar was busier than the restaurant, but we visited at an odd time of day, and on a holiday when most people were not working.

This appears to be a local gathering place, with a bar-type atmosphere. We stopped on a Saturday night, and were treated to really good live music. Food and service were good - not excellent. My wifes grilled cheese was pretty soggy. The clam chowder had...More
