Billingsgate Lighthouse Cafe

I’ve known about this place for a while, but just got around to trying it.  Billingsgate Fish Co. has both a seafood market and a diner.  Their fresh sea food in the market is superb.  I brought home oysters in the shell and pickeral. The cafe is a nice idea, you can pick anything from the market and they will cook it for you.  This is mostly a fried fish kind of a place.  My friend had the Boston clam chowder.  I sampled it, it was good, but had a strong flavor of tarragon.  I find tarragon to be pretty overpowering and should be used sparingly.

We shared the crab cakes which tasted house made. Very good. The oysters in the burger were plump and delicious, but they spent too much time in the deep fryer and were dark brown. Same with the fries.  For a diner, I think its’ good value. I would come back if only for the freshness of the seafood.
