    Make sure to go on an empty stomach b/c you're going to want to eat a lobster roll and finish it off with dessert with either gelato, ice cream or a pastry!

    Hearty creamy Clamchowder, scallops wrapped in bacon on a skewer, any fried seafood, and everything else on the menu is delicious. Generous portions and quick, friendly service!

    Got fried clams at Fishermans Net. Good helping of clams and fresh cut fries. I've had better but these were still good. Scallops were a bit over cooked. Not bad for a booth restaurant.
