Tear your eyes away from the lobster roll menu—you won’t be disappointed. This sandwich includes a whole fried filet of haddock with homemade tartar sauce (either traditional tartar or dill). We love to top it with a bit of their house-made coleslaw, which comes as a side. It’s not traditional either, but consider upgrading to the thin hand-cut onion rings on the side.

You can get your sandwich with scrod broiled or fried, which is a nice touch, and topped with cheddar cheese, which is a wee bit decadent.
