Love the New England food in the Key West style atmosphere. Lobster and shrimp roll delicious as well as cole slaw and sides. Very casual with a helpful staff. Definitely kid friendly yet great for couples.

Like going for fast food but the big difference is great sea food. Fried haddock and fries were surprisingly not greasy at all. Crispy crust on the haddock and very tasty. My wife had the haddock sandwich and found it the same as my fried...More
