Service was quick and wait staff engaging and attentive. Their blueberry lemonade was really good. The corn bread muffins with the fish and chips were tasty. Fish and chips were excellent-only disappointment was the amount/size of the fish portion.

We went for the 1st time last Thursday and had a great time. Our bartender was named Joy and she was excellent. We decided to go back the next night. The oysters were delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

This is a nice place if you like seafood. Crab cake was delicious, lobster roll is also good. The interior is sea-themed and the staff is nice.

Can be extremely busy for dinner. On a Friday during lent you will find more Catholics waiting for a table than actually attend mass on Sunday. That said this place can be worth the wait, but this location is usually a bit too small for its reputation and demand. They have a very small lobby to wait for a table in, so on a cold day, you're waiting outside.
The food is very good, I would call it comfort seafood. Much of the menu is fried and everything seems to come with either a side of fries or mac and cheese. For those you looking for a meal that was not prepared with a deep fryer, they have one or two non-fried fish dishes and a good lobster roll. I will be honest they don't have the largest menu, but what they do offer they do a great job with it.
The overall cost for a meal here is not extremely over-priced, but at the same time, it is not a value meal. I guess this is what it was like to dine at Red Lobster before it was a national chain in every American strip mall, and without the cheddar biscuits.
