Had fish and chips, chowder and prawns. Meal was a disappointment, crust on fish was hard and fish a little dry. Cost very much compared to value of meal.

We had one of the mussels dishes and a bowl of clam chowder. Both were delicious. The mussel dish sauce of the was so great that I asked and got more bread to use to soak up and eat the sauce. The chowder didn't have the usual thickening ingredient which made the flavors really stand out. Even though they were... More

Great food, small restaurant, reservations recommended. The chef's choice Mussels were awesome, and the seafood Cioppino was excellent. Well worth the wait. Great view of Penn Cove while eating.

Our out-of-state visitor wanted to enjoy the mussels of Penn Cove, so three of us came for lunch on a Friday afternoon. We were greeted and seated promptly in the cozy dining room which overlooks the water. Our server, Christina, was outstanding - very gracious and attentive to every detail. We enjoyed mussels three ways - Chef's Choice (which were... More

A group of friends and family went in for a late lunch and had a very good experience. This place features Penn Cove shellfish but everything from the burgers to Dan's Spicy Seafood Pasta were very tasty. Ambiance is warm and welcoming. Service very good. Would definitely go again.

My friend and I stopped at Front Street Grill today for lunch. We lucked out and sat at a table overlooking the water. I had a delicious bowl of clam chowder and some of the best fish and chips. The fish was fresh and hardy. Not quite sure how the French fries were cooked, but WOW!!! Best fries ever and... More

My wife and I had an early dinner. The staff was courteous and responsive. I had a very nice chowder and my wife greatly enjoyed a salad. The mains were very well prepared and nicely seasoned. Some Apple pie for desert topped off a very nice meal. Well worth a second visit.

I really enjoyed the place when it opened, but after a few years the food and service slipped quite a bit, and I stopped coming. I recently returned and was pleased with the new menu, the quality of the food and the excellent service I received. I liked it enough to return a few nights later, and again enjoyed the... More

Good food in a warm, art-filled environment. At lunch, soups were delicious and burgers fresh and flavorful, and our light-fare dinner was accompanied by live music. Worth a visit.
