Unassuming exterior, classic Delaware County spot. Warm and friendly staff, great fresh seafood. As a group, we just decided to do multiple appetizers for the table. Nothing fancy, just really solid well prepared food. Highly recommended.

Fresh fish at a fair price. Good service and well managed. Very good old time cuisine such as fried flounder. They also do a nice job with the raw selections. Quality seafood.

I grew up in Delco and this is what a fine Delco restaurant is. Great food, decent prices and top notch waitstaff. The Maitre D type guy stops at all the tables to bs and make sure your food is perfect.

My fiancé and I go here frequently. They have amazing appetizers and entrees, the filet special topped with crab meat and sun dried tomatoes with Marsala sauce is both our favorite!

My family has been coming here for years! Love the food, great employees, and lots of memories made here. Baked clams are a must have. Combination platter is delicious. Keep an eye for specials as they are a great value.
