“Awful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

The food might as well be from the Gorton's fisherman frozen meal selections -- bland, smelly, and discolored. Service is okay, could be better, atmosphere needs improvement too.

“Fresh and Delicious Food at moderate prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2011

We visited this restaurant several times at both the beginning and end of August. Each time the service was attentive and pleasant,and the food, from meat to seafood to salads was excellent. The portion sizes were generous as well. We look forward to returning to our next visit when we travel to Milford.

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2009

We have never had a bad meal. Everything has always been fresh and the poportions are usually huge!!! Love sitting outside on the deck drinking a beer eating cajun clams!!
It's a great place for the kids too, Being outside you don't feel like they are annoying to many patrons. :).

“Really fresh seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2008

What a great restaurant! It is not just fried fish, it has fresh fish and seafood cooked in many different ways. I had the lobster bisque, which was amazing and clearly homemade. The fried oysters were hot and greaseless - freshly breaded. It is very informal, perfect for a family. There's even kiddy favs like hamburgers. Everything looks homemade.
