We typically visit during the week but decided to try it on a Friday night. No waiting to sit inside and Jaime D is a fantastic server. As advertised, fish is fresh and we both had a great meal.

We had lunch there on a Saturday, no wait for a table. The fried clams were delicious, fresh and possibly the best I've had. The lunch portion is a great size and you have a choice of sides including coleslaw if you don't want fries.

4 close friends gathered here for lunch. We have been here before and always enjoyed it, we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, as was the service. And, the beer was good and cold. We will definitely return!
