My wife got a job today. Reason enough for celebrating. That being said, I decided we needed a meal out, as it's kinda been in-a-funk-city around here, of late. The Clam bucket, is unpretentious, lively with a warm cozy decor. West coast quirky. The fish...More

I had soup and a wrap here. The soup did not impress, either lacking in taste or tasting bad (memory is imprecise). It was quite busy with mostly local clientele it seemed. Service was mediocre too.

Had diner with two young kids. Atmosphere is really easy going, salmon was a little dry and the kids meal had too much garlic in it. But decent food and relaxed atmosphere.

They offer a sweet location and with close proximity to the water you’d expect much better. Had the mussels they were over cook and fishy tasting. Everyone else was also unhappy with their meals. We likely won’t return.
