COMMON SENSE IS NOT SO COMMON, IMPROVE YOUR MIND, EAT LOTS OF SALMON.

       
  OUR HISTORY

How did it all get started? Ever since I was a little boy, I have loved the Sea and loved to fish. As a young man when I returned home from World War 2 I worked as a journeyman carpenter by day, composed music and played the piano by night. One day while working I made a goal to spend the rest of my life working with what I loved, ‘FISH’. So after much scrimping and saving I finally made it into the seafood business in 1951.


                               

The original name of our restaurant was Seafood Varieties and in front of the restaurant we had large lobster and crab cookers. It took about three years for me to realize that nobody knew us by our business name, instead they referred to us as the place with the big Crab Cookers. Essentially our customers named the restaurant, and I was happy to change the name for them. Time has facilitated many changes with our building, refrigeration techniques etc., but the one thing that has not changed or will not change is our persistent dedication to constantly provide you, our customers, the worlds finest seafood. It may sound corny, but the truth of the matter is, in 1951 I fell in love with the fish business and our customers and I have been on a honeymoon ever since.

Thank you very much,
