"I use to work for R&D Seafood years ago and since I worked there I know what the quality is like, which is nothing but top notch. Ron and Marc have a standard to which they want there products to be like. I know first hand if it doesn't meet there standards they will send it back. There is a reason why this business has been around since 1968 and it's the same reasons that keep me coming back every week. Coming into this store they will make you feel like family. Expect nothing but great fish, laughs, and customer service. These guys love what they do and are happy as clams. I have learnt a lot from them and hope they continue to thrive for many years to come! "

"Have been a customer since 1994 and still a regular customer. Whether you're buying for a diner for two or 100 these guys always come through with the freshest fish and shellfish! I just finished a small clambake for a group of 30 - the lobstah sand steamers were ready to go when I arrived. You can also get seaweed for the pit/pot. Best part - Ronnie and Mark always send you on your way with a laugh."

"You just don't find personal customer service like this anymore. Excellent stuffies and clam chowder - fish is super fresh!"
