What a good place to take your Family for a good meal. They have Inside and outside tables. They overlook a marina and the atmosphere is great. They have a good menu selection and their seafood is good.

Great place for clams and clam chowder. If you like the bellies in the clams and a great view, this a a great place to eat. I just wish they were open year round.

Very nice décor. We had a table near the window. This restaurant is just across the road from the beach. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We started with the clam chowder. It was thick and yummy. It was honestly the best clam chowder I've ever had! Next, we had a warm lobster roll which was buttery and delicious!... More

We were there in Mid-September 2016 during the off season on a Monday night. There was no line and no wait. The food and service was excellent. We sat upstairs on the deck and had a nice view of the ocean. I would definitely go there again.

We visited at the end of September which is off season but this place was packed by 5:00. We got a seat upstairs on the enclosed deck. It was cold so they had the heat on. Our table was under the heater which was quite stifling. Thank goodness we had tees on under our clothes. Anyway the food was excellent!... More
