I went here for dinner one night and had an oyster basket. The oysters were ridiculously fresh and delicious. The fries were very good and the cole slaw was fresh and just the way I like it. They make their own wheat beer which went well with the meal. Highly recommend!

One of our favorites. Back room has lots of tv's for sports. Food is excellent and the clam chowder is the best! Fun karaoke Thursday through Saturday evenings and the Sniki Tikit (outside bar area) next door is great as well.

You can't find better clam chowder anywhere. Even in New England where they go to enter the contests up in the north east. They win the contests. They also ship anywhere. All the seafood entrees I've eaten there are very good. Parking is a challenge but it is well worth it.

This place reminds me of old Florida. Wooden tables and benches and a bit noisy. It could get really loud during high season. The food is quite good. I had a grouper sandwich and tried the clam chowder. I don't think it's the best I've ever had, but it's pretty darn good!

Bought a quart each time, both times to enjoy myself and share with friends. The most plentiful with very tender clams this former Bostonian has had, and not cluttered with potatoes like far too many are.

A bowl of clam chowder and a couple beers make for a great meal here. The clam chowder has won national awards and is some of the best I have ever had. I tasted a few other appetizers here which were good, but the clam chowder definitely is the best.

One of my favorite places for authentic seafood. Picnic tables an booths. Their New England Clam Chowder won 1st. place in a New England contest and is amazing. You have to try it. Service is always great. Fish sandwiches are fresh and delicious. So are the Oysters. Come casual and enjoy.
