The owner isn't interested in satisfying customers, only his ego! Always appearing on Boston media shows. Not sure it helps his local clientele. His food is ok, and I give him a B+ for effort, but his restaurant environment of early strip mall is not...More

My husband ordered ribs and I got a scallop and whole belly clam plate. Portions were on the smallish size. The seafood was well prepared, though the scallops a bit greasy. There were about 6 good sized scallops and about 6 clams of varying size....More

In a non-descript strip mall in the NH boonies, this very casual little place serves up some splendid food. Swordfish to perfection, scallops too. Prices very moderate, service pleasant, smiling, efficient. An excellent draft beer menu too. I'll be back.

Saw them on Phantom Gourmet and have looking forward to our visit, worth the wait. It's a relatively small place with a casual atmosphere and a large TV with the Food Channel playing when we visited. The staff was very friendly and the owner was...More

We have been here at least 10 times. This time was disappointing. My swordfish was dry and the broccoli was soggy and tasted old. My companion's lobster roll did not measure up to the usually quality and the cole slaw tasted off. I hope this...More
