We've been dining at OSP for over two decades and have never had a bad meal! Portions are generous, prices are very reasonable and the staff friendly and efficient. Fried haddock dinner is superb!

Good variety of fish available for preparation your own way, bake, broil, fry, breaded or not. Great fish for sale, to take home and prepare yourself, as well. This has got to be one of the best Fish Fry Joints in the area.

Great seafood restaurant. On the casual side but the food is good and plentiful. Staff are friendly. Outdoor eating is available in good weather.

The food is great what the small amount of sauces that they give you to put on your fish is not enough for the price you pay you should get double of what they give you

I've eaten here often and the food is consistently good. The other half of the building is a very active fish market, so the seafood is always fresh. Portions are very good. Not a fancy place, but is friendly and satisfying. Get the Shore Fries.

Styrofoam plates and plastic forks can't ruin this simple old-fashioned seafood shack. Good size portions simply cooked, delicious. We'll be back. The crew is upbeat and friendly. You'll like it.

First.....this is NOT a fancy restaurant. You order when you come in ... at the window. Pay in cash or check, no cards. Find a seat and they deliver. Homemade New England Clam Chowder was definitely homemade. Lots and lots of clams and veggies. Very hot temperature. Better than Legal Seafood. Seafood platter next with two sides. More than enough... More 

Thank john b
