It's true, this place is great! We ordered a two-piece cod and a two-piece haddock for dinner and enjoyed both very much. Good portion sizes and friendly service. It's a great option for a quick and tasty meal.

Not only does Buy the Sea have an excellent choice of fresh fish and seafood, they also have delicious New England clam chowder and the freshest and crispiest fish and chips. Friendly and knowledgeable staff make this a great place to visit.
