WHY Very fresh char-broiled fish (yellowfin tuna, mahi mahi, catfish, swordfish) that is not overcooked like it usually is at these kinds of places, served with rice or perfect fries.
WHAT Don’t be put off by the paper plates, concrete picnic tables or lunchtime crowds—this seafood-market and café has fish better than at many a white-tablecloth restaurant. We prefer the char-broiled choices over the fried, which are a little more generic; the lobster is worth the splurge. Some, though, swear by the fried scallops and sand dabs.
WHO Working men and families who have been coming here for three generations.
