    Don't sit in the bar area. It gets busy and service is slow. I was there an hour and a half to just have a bowl of fish chowder, which was delicious btw.

    I don't know why all the raving about the clam chowder. It was just ok, lots of crab but short on flavor. The lobster bake however was amazing!!!

    Sensational chowder. Food is decent but avoid the rather anemic crab cakes. Stick to safer options such as the oysters and mussels.

    I didn't expect their Cedar Planked Salmon to be nearly raw in the center. Or their red lettuce to be this bitter. Most restaurants ask how you want your beef steak done, why leave salmon raw?

    Order the crab cake, it's their signature. The clam chowder is also great - in fact it's used for the Presidential Banquet.

    The unlimited Chowder with a salad lunch special is a great deal. Also, the tuna melt is unique, it's a wrap with provolone and romano and it's delicious.
