We enjoyed a meal along the way to somewhere else. It was fast service and great tasting. Our selections were for fried items which were good, but a little heavy, but tasty and generous portions.

I love, love, love this place. Great place to stop and have some delicious food. Amazing lobster stew. Amazing fish chowder. Amazing fried shrimp. Shall I go on? Nice, friendly employees. I would highly recommend this place to family, friends, and more.

A basket of fried seafood, you can’t go wrong! The staff was friendly and the food tasty. A very casual setting, you order up front and pickup your own food. Plenty of seating and it’s located right on route 1.
