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,
