This is not fancy but the food was tasty. My tastes lean more toward the fried so I had the Seafood Platter as a nice mix of everything. All the items were good but the scallops were easily the high point for me. My wife had the lobster roll which she said was good but she had had better in... More

They have a very wide variety of fish and seafood prepared virtually any way you would like. The restaurant is casual, you place your order and then pick it up at the counter. The decor is very casual, but the ambience is friendly. The place is immaculate. Prices are very reasonable.

After standing in line for a few minutes, I decided on the haddock and fried oyster😊haddock was a bit dry but the fried oyster was great😊 if you are on a budget and don't mind fried food, it's worth trying😊

Fresh seafood, quick n easy, inexpensive. Just a good place to go to get some good seafood (fish) lunch/dinner. They do have clams as well, but I usually go for the fish and chips.

Tiny neighborhood restaurant was extremely busy at 6pm on a Wednesday evening. Mostly take-out as there are only 9 tables to dine-in. Order at the counter and wait for your number to be called. Needless to say, its a tough decision what to choose as there is the regular menu and then a whiteboard with about 10 specials of the... More

A great find in Cambridge. I had broiled swordfish that was fantastic. I did not expect this and was pleasantly surprised. If I am back in the area I will stop in.

This restaurant might be described as a 'hole in the wall', but, you come here for the food, not the ambience. The food is very fresh and tasty. Staff is polite and courteous. Highly recommend the shrimp and calamari.
