“Tried and true. Nothing better.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2014

If you want fresh seafood,burgers or dogs. this the place. It has a great view of the Thames River looking toward Groton. And the people and service is the best. Seating is outdoors or take out.

I have been coming here since I was little. And I will never stop.

“Great fish sandwiches”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

If you're looking for a very casual outdoor seafood dinner, this is the place. Parking can be difficult, and the tables aren't always the cleanest, but the food is delicious and reasonably priced. They have some of the best fish sandwiches around, and I miss them in the off season!

“Definite Must”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013

A must visit every year. Especially when you want seafood outside. A place for great food and great views. Always miss them is the offseason. Parking can be hard at dinnertime, but is worth it.
