Reviewed yesterday NEW

I really enjoyed the Atlantic. We visited there for lunch yesterday and found friendly service and good food. They served a tasty fried codfish with fresh, tender morsels and crispy skin. The mashed had a little garlic, cheese, and spice to it.

Popped in here for a quick bite to eat before a long day. Very unassuming place and all the better for it. My wife had the cod and I had the burger, both were top quality and reasonably priced. Staff were very friendly.

The chowder is cream based with generous portions of fish and shellfish. Love the barkeeps and staff and if you are lucky enough to have Maura on staff that day she... More
