I know many have posted on this establishment previously, but I must chime in. No longer BYOB, but BYOB friendly. I'm not sure how friendly a $5 corkage fee is, but my budget wine was not worth paying an extra 5 bucks for. The house white at $4 a glass was perfectly acceptable.

I went for the Greenspan special. Between 5-7 any day they're open, a cup of chowda, lobster roll, and fries is $15. It was fantastic. The fresh-cut fries were greasy, but really tasty. The lobster roll decadent, and the chowda was chock-full of tender, yet slightly chewy clams. As a first time visitor, I was extremely impressed. A complimentary tasty bite was brought to the table. It was toasted bread with a slice of zucchini and a dollop of dill cream. The homebaked rolls came with a dish of unsalted butter and some sea salt to use to dip was a nice touch.

The service was a bit slow. I wanted my soup before the roll, but it all came together. The portions were quite large. My dinner partner had the fish special of the day, which she said was quite good with a nice mashed potato side.

With wine, the bill came to only 50 without the tip. All that fish and seafood with drinks for under $30 dollars a person is an excellent deal to me.

I wanna try the clams, but just can't fathom paying $16 for a half-order. I was very tempted, though.

Bon Appetit!
