Went there in March in the off season. Is one of the few places on the NH coast open off season. Food was so-so. Waitress was attentive. I like that they use real plates & silverware.

Love the seafood here. Always fresh, batter is light, great menu choices, staff is friendly and the drinks are fabulous. Great for the family or a fun night out with friends. Be prepared for a wait in the summer as this place is packed June-September.

Met two friends I hadn't seen in awhile for lunch. Our waitress was very attentive and knew we wanted to visit with one another and didn't hurry us. We took our time ordering drinks and meals. All our meals (mussels and salad, salad with grilled shrimp, and fish sandwich) were all seasoned well and cooked well.

On a balmy spring like day last week, my wife & I took a ride up to NH to enjoy a coast road ride thru Salisbury MA, Hampton, NH and Rye, NH. The temperature soared to the 60's so we decided to get out and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. It was a great day. It got better when... More

When the parking lot is full on a rainy/snowy day, you know you've stopped at the right place. My husband had a scallop roll with fries and I had a clam roll with fries. Excellent! The waitress told us that the chef changes the oil every day and doesn't just filter the oil. Makes a huge difference! The decor was... More

The fried clams were the best I've ever eaten, bar none. Light and crunchy, sublime! Very good haddock chowder, lousy margarita
