Same location, family ownership and, largely, clientele for nearly 50 years. The Milhous family runs a pretty tight ship (it’s moored right out front!) when it comes to delivering great, fresh seafood to a largely geriatric clientele. One day in the not too distant future, I’ll be one of the old geezers. Until then, I’ll contentedly continue to use my own teeth to nosh through some really fine and sometimes rare jewels of the sea like fresh John Dory, swordfish, shark, abalone, whole body Ipswich Clams, sole, sand dabs, deep fried lobster chunks and homemade pickled herring. Daily specials. Delicious, plump, fresh oysters are a real steal at only $12.95/doz! Their battered and fried shrimp are second to none. Wonderful crab sandwich made with 100% real crab, no filler! Can’t get enough of that pickled Cole Slaw made without mayo. Great clam (red) or fish (white) chowders. Where else can you go and be offered a choice of cottage cheese or tomato instead of fries or baked potato with your meal? A nursing home, maybe?

I luv this place! Been goin’ for 25 years with nary a disappointment in food or service. My favorite day is Tuesday. They’re closed on Sundays and Mondays.
