Great seafood for the price. Take out ready with 15 minutes. Food fresh and hot. The Haddock is the best!

Our friends took us to this little restaurant in a mini mall in Execter. What a pleasant surprise...seafood absolutely delicious and within the average price for the region. Chowder was awesome, lobster roll very good, the waitress was pleasant and the short wait for seats well worth it.

1st night of vacation, and not disappointed. Good start to the holiday. I had some very tasty fish while my wife and son had lobster each and they really enjoyed it. Great Service with friendly staff and very good food.

We stopped here for a quick dinner. Located in a mall at the end and easy to miss. Clam chowder was great as were fried clams--nice breading and flavorful.

Strip mall restaurant with good seafood that is reasonably priced. Good service. It is located in the corner of the center so it is easy to miss. Not the greatest atmosphere.

Amazed they are still in business. Popular with the senior crowd. More of a fast food place although you do get waited on.
