The food was good. Decent portions. Also, they will deliver to local hotels if you don't feel like going out.

We stopped here because it had good reviews and said they had fresh fish. It is a small restaurant with a take out counter on one half of the restaurant. We sat down in the restaurant and ordered the broiled fish combo that had two small scallops (fresh) 3 rubbery shrimp, a piece of flounder (best part) and a small... More

Thought this restaurant off the beaten path would be a good choice. Food was okay, snotty waitress. Not worth the $70.

Nice place, friendly and fast service. A clear menue that is focused on Fish and shellfish. My broiled flounder missed salt and other spice but was very fresh. The mini potatoes were great. Shrip and crab were also good. Most Food was not served on plates but on paper plates which was a great disappointment for me. As in most... More

This eat-in or take out is better than a 3 but not a 4. Chowder was good but a very small portion for $4.50. I had New England, my dining partner had Manhattan. I ordered broiled combo 1, flounder was juicy and tender, as were the local scallops(2). My shrimp(3) were overcooked and I didn't care for the crabcake binder.... More

During our week long family vacation we visited/ picked up and had food delivered from the Fish Factory! Everything that we had was delicious and super fresh! The only negative is that there is no fish factory where we live:)!

I'm a New Englander and pretty tough on seafood joints. This place is the real deal; excellent linguine with clams as well as traditional broiled fare. Danielle was so pleasant we came back the following night. Great food, definitely will be back.
