One of our local favorites and we eat out five days a week. Best chowder around. Fresh fish. Casual and laid back. Love the rock shrimp. Always friendly faces who are attentive.

I don't have a clue what the rating is from the health dept. All I know is that we were not to impressed with the place. And who cares what the health dept. rates it. It's about us if we are satisfied customers. Thanks,
