“BeCauseway it's just good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

I've loved this place for years. Fresh, fresh Italian-American seafood dishes at prices which won't necessitate taking out a second mortgage to cover. Sure, it's cramped, "homey", & you will sit outside for a bit most days waiting for one of the coveted tables, but just chalk it up to the experience (note: don't be a pain & stick your head in, asking when you'll be called. They're all busy, & they haven't forgotten you). Better yet, since it is BYOB, take a ride to one of the local packies & bring back a pop, or two, to speed the time (note: there is a small charge for wine set-ups with dinner, but I've never seen them actually charge it). In a town full of establishments which makes a considerable amount of coin tossing outrageously priced previously frozen seafood at la turistas who don't know any better, this place is a welcome change. Take the short cruise down 133 & see for yourself.

“Huge portions in a casual atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

The Causeway is a casual restaurant that specializes in seafood. It is not very big, so you sometimes have to wait for a table during busy times. The wait staff is very friendly and they allow you to bring in your own alcohol.

“Large Portions and Ok Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

This is a place where a lot of the locals go as you can bring your own alcohol and the portions are very generous. Personally I prefer it for take out especially for the fish chowder which is very good with lots of fish. The couple of times I went there to eat I was not crazy about the place. If you are thinking of going there in the summer I would either go early or call in a take out as the lines are long. The portions are very large and for the most part the food is good. Just not a place I would enjoy for any ambiance.

“Fish Fry”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

If you like mammoth portions of fried food, it's the place to be. One meal feeds two. Fish is fresh.
