Great food. Straightforward, no fuss seafood. Got the clam chowder which was great. Followed that with prawn and scallop saute served with scalloped potatoes and spinach. Really good. Add to that friendly staff and a nice chilled atmosphere, can't ask for more. Why it wasn't jammed to the walls? No idea. I'll be back though.

This is a nod to old school seafood restaurants. No frills, simple but good wine list. Menu is one page - with lots of space. Seafood was alive that morning. Nearly everything is local and everything is fresh. Always ask what the catches of the day are...they are reasonably priced (

- Salmon (a daily fish special) was grilled well, not dry at all. And topped with "a la Betty" sauce - capers, tomato, garlic, oil. Sauce had good flavor, not too heavy or overwhelming on the fish. It came with a side of spinach and potato au gratin. The potato was pretty heavy and buttery but tasty, it was small+good sized portion. - Boston Clam chowder - a decent amount of clam, and not chewy, pretty good Complimentary crusty bread, with butter or balsamic and olive oil at the table. Ambiance: nice place for a casual meal. Staff was very friendly.
