Great fish & chips...: chowder was not the best in Long Beach but good. Next time I will go for crab cakes as they are really good. Recommend everyone to try at least once.

Had crab rolls and chowders on a lunch stop. Divine rolls with plenty of fresh crab; cups of shrimp and clam chowders both excellent choices for fillers. Would return for more if it was closer. Note: It's a small simple place, with a few booths inside and a couple of outside pub-ish tables. Don't equate the physical appearance with the... More

Captain Bob's chowder is thickened with mashed potatos so it gives the soup a consistency like thin mashed potatoes. The clams were tender and it has a black pepper finish.

Ordered the chowder. It tasted OK and very creamy but there were hardly any clams or anything else in it. Wife complained about it being too salty. Did not try anything else on the menu. Place was clean and the staff were friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I'm surprised your chowder were missing clams. We use several pounds in every pot. As for the salt we use very little because you can alway add but not take away. Next time in town please stop in and give us another try. Again thank you for taking the time... More

Best crab roll sandwich. Not fishy tasting and full of crab and not a lot of filler. Liked it better than the chowder. It had too much potato for me to be a great clam chowder but it was hot and not gritty tasting! Slow but friendly service here! Great location!

Thank you for the review. Makes us very happy to hear you enjoyed your meal. I'm sorry you felt the service was slow. It's just Capt. Bob and myself and we try our best to give you quick friendly service, but sometimes those darn fries slow us down. More

This place is a treat. It is small, good things so come in small packages. It all looked and smelled good, but we had the clam chowder and crab roll. Like a lobster roll only crab, excellent

Staff ran out of chowder and fish & chips by early afternoon. Small restaurant to serve all the people looking forward to the excellent chowder. Approx. 5-6 different items to choose from so once the featured items were gone it is time to try a larger place. Say your thanks by giving them a nice tip!

Went here Thursday. Very small place with limited seating but dont be fooled! The fish and chips are probably the best in this area. big cod pieces and fries were not little or greasy. Wish it was closer to where i live.

Was looking for a fresh seafood dinner, and this place was closed. It's right in the downtown tourist area, so it has an excellent location for dinner. Too bad

I'm sorry we missed you. Our hours are 11-5 and closed on Wednesday. Our staff consist of Capt. Bob and I. We use to stay open until 7pm but, we are more of a lunch spot. After 5pm people prefer larger establishments. Please join us for lunch you won't be disappointed. More
