“Great fresh fish”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

Came here for a drink and dinner after a day on the water.
I had the blackened fish tacos which were fantastic.Very tasty and spicy.
Two of our party had the mahi mahi sandwich ,they said it was very tasty juicy and lovely firm flesh.
The fries were ok .
Our server was attentive and efficient.
Best fish place we've had a ages.
Thanks

“Clams on the run”
Reviewed 30 October 2013

The Clam Factory has an outside bar a few feet from Cortez Rd. Easy to just stop by for some samples of the raw bar.

The Manhattan Clam Chowder was tasty, a little thin but good flavor. The clams are small "little necks", as we called them in Long Island, but they were fresh and full of flavor.

A good stop on the way from the beach -
