Full disclosure: I am not a seafood fan so I ordered the burger and it was amazing, so fresh and very tasty. My coworker loved her crab cake sandwich and said it was one of the best she'd ever had, but what made this truly...More

Well, this IS the place you want to visit for great seafood in Montgomery County. From the Clam Chowder to the Fried Clams to the Fish, Lobster and other Shellfish you won’t find a better place without heading to the Cape.

While belly clams and scallops, not bad. The clams were nicely fried but had sand and shells. Probably won't be back for the clams

I took my mother here for a birthday lunch. She wanted a lobster roll. The server was slow and it was not that busy. The lobster rolls were average and the corn on the Cobb was charred. We were told that they would bring out...More
