I had a dozen of the freshest top necks ever & a lobster roll with loads of tasty lobster meat. Friend had 6 little necks, NE clam chowder & crab cakes- gave them his highest rating. His wife had broiled salmon & veggies. Food was fresh, tasty and plenty of it.
Frankly, we went there for good food and found it. We expected an old time fish shack and were not disappointed. We ate at the counter. The bathroom was clean & had soap. The whole place was sanitary. Surprisingly, the place did not have a "fishy" smell, even though counter few feet from fish market. No decor - didn't care. We went for good food in a relaxed clean place and were not disappointed. If I had a camera, the only pictures I would take would have been of the memorable plates of food.
We went at 3:00pm on a weekday, so were seated at once as the place was empty. Staff and service was attentive, immediate and very satisfactory. Would be afraid to go at busier times since there's a very small parking lot and limited seating in this small place. Would we go again mid-day or very early evening on a weekday? Already making plans and looking forward to it.
We felt like we got bargain prices for excellent quality and well-prepared large portions of food.
The food was adequate. I had a triple fish dish, not a lot of food. A small portion. There are additional costs for broiled instead of fried. I was charged for a second soda and the first was all ice.
Even though this is a very casual place. there was no air conditioning in the inside room. It was about 85 to 90 degrees and there was so much dust it looked like no one has cleaned or wiped anything in weeks. It is very hard to eat in such a dirty place. Yes, it is a fish market but the atmosphere made it very uncomfortable.
They do not take credit cards.
Broiled food should not cost more then fried for the same dish.
I don't think I want to go back. Been there before and looked forward to enjoying the food.
I've never had fresher fish. They cook each dish in its own pan. Big portions. Get 1 or 2 appetizers and you will not be disappointed.
The decor looks like a basement from the seventies. Most of the time its quiet .Friday and Saturday nights can get loud and crowded. The kitchen as well as the fish market is very clean probably because the owner, Artie, is always there. No water view.
The service is above average.
You stand in the fish market while you wait, sometimes for quite awhile. There are no reservations.
Bring your own drinks since there is no bar.
Low-tech, low-skill, short order cook style dishes. Lots of fried fish.
It's a Fish Market.
The girls behind the counter are friendly and cute too. It takes way too long for the fry boys to cook this stuff.
Prices are too high for this type of place.
If you are jonesing for a soft shelled crab or want some chowder on a cold day I would stop in again.
