This is a cute little roadside stand. Very clean with classic oldies playing in the background and classic board games for the kids to play! Food is much better this year than last year. Chowder has improved and many more clams in the clam cakes! Service is friendly and not slow. Prices a little high for what it is but not a deal breaker. Relaxing and clean may it worth it!

Fast and friendly service, even received sample of their two chowders, complementing them on both. Plenty of clams, not too many potatoes as someone complained last year. Clam cakes were done with clams and great honemade tartar sauce on the side. Nicely decorated with plenty of seating. Support your local small businesses!

The French fries were nothing special, the chicken sandwich was extremely greasy- even the bun- and the service was slow. My wife's clam chowder was tasty yet her onion rings were not all that flavorful and the portion size rather small.

A road side stand that you order and pick up at the window. It does not have a dining room but does have a large eating area outside. The food is really good and the fish is not overcooked. It looks clean and neat (You can see your food being prepared from the window) My husband and I have been going there for years. I believe the same family owns this rest. but another member runs it and has changed the name. (I am not sure on this though) The food is hot and comes out quickly. It is great if you do not want to wait for your food. We have never had a bad meal there.

Some of the prices may seem high depending on what you're used to... But the food is good, and the ice cream is delicious.

There is ample seating (unless they're crazy busy) and a porta-potty behind the building. There is parking on premise. If it's busy be prepared to wait up to 10 minutes for your food. This is "fast" food but also made to order good food.

For those who need gluten free options they have gluten free hamburger and hot dog buns, and bread for sandwiches. The buns are toasted and taste great. I have had the cheeseburger on gluten free bun with no reaction. They also have potato chips as a side that are gluten free.

Ask which ice creams are gluten free as well- the woman who helped me was very helpful in telling me which I could have. (I had the black raspberry chocolate chip).
