True New England seafood experience, with a view of the water that is ideal. Only wish it had been warmer to sit outside. Fried seafood fest -- clam cakes (think Conch Fritters with clam), Fried Clams, Fried Scallops (so delighfully cripsy and brown) crab cakes and grilled shrimp that were the best shrimp we've ever eaten. More of a beer... More

Food is good, but way overpriced. If you go when the weather is good, and get the timing right, you can score a seat outside behind the restaurant. We a couple years ago and paid $27 for a plate of fried clams. Many other restaurants within 10 miles of this place have fresh seafood, prepared well at half the cost.... More

The view was great. The food was very good. The prices are ok, but not for the type of building where located. The bathroom was portible in the left side back of the building. Not good!

Although the location is great - right on a pond with outdoor seating and a small dock. And they do support Singing Out Against Hunger concerts. However, I find them to be expensive and the food is not that great.

The place is a small, aged, drive-in restaurant with some tables inside. We visited last Saturday. The parking lot fills up fast and you will have to park on the busy road across the street. Inside, the air conditioner was drafty and uncomfortably cool. We were able to get a table near the window just under the AC unit so... More

Come for the food and enjoy the sunsets. Situated on a small pond of water with a view of the sunset is priceless. Add that to the delicious fried clams, calamari and lobster and you have the perfect New England dinner.

First recommended by Guy Fieri (who I really don't like) we tried this little shack (literally) about 4 years ago and have been back about 20 times since. Never had a bad meal. I have my standard by now, a cup of chowder, the fritters and the Greek Calamari Salad. However, everything is great.
