Not a white tablecloth kind of place. That's why we like it.
PARKING: a few spots in front of the building, otherwise park around back. We always find a spot.
SETTING: a few long high tables that you may or may not have to share, a few low tables and a counter looking into the kitchen. Also a small terrace out front, screened off from the street by planters.
RESERVATIONS: none (but call if you have 6 or more, it might work)
WAIT: we almost always wait; you have to gauge how long when you show up
SERVICE: it's a friendly wait staff, and they recognize you. If there's a problem, they make it right.
FOOD: this is FRESH seafood. They have fish, oysters, chowder, and a lot more. They make what we think are the best chips in town.
FAVORITES: Petrale sole, always with a light touch, linguine with clams, or the really light and crisp fish and chips.
BEER & WINE: several tap beers, (maybe all local?), and a very good selection of wines by the glass (or bottle) at reasonable prices.
OVERALL: this is the kind of place that you would imagine is run by fishermen, because that's what it is (okay, maybe they weren't out on the boat, but they're down at the docks every day, and their store is very popular). An informal, busy place (don't expect to see carpeting). The food is the focus. They take pride in their reputation and it shows.
We stop in once a month or so. It's always fun to go there. It's a family place. The owner is very friendly and glad to see you, and the wait staff and the kitchen really hustle. They work hard and you don't mind giving them your money.
