Seahorse Seafood Shack, Pleasantville

Place just opened a couple of weeks ago. Looks pretty good. Went and tried the cod sandwich, grilled, and the Rhode Island Chowder. Both excellent! The chowder was clear (cloudy really) with a heap of potatoes, big pieces of clams, and wonderful flavor.

The cod sandwich was unusual, prepared grilled. Great flavor, on a perfect roll, and the tartar sauce was tangy and not the standard stuff.

Can't wait to go back for other fish, like sole, the lobster roll, and whatever great soup they have that day. So glad to have a place like this around! Nothing like it unless you drive 35 miles to Westport CT (Westfair Fish & Chips)

Welcome, Seahorse, to the neighborhood!

  1. In case anyone is wondering where this place is, it's in the old Pony Express spot (since Pony Express moved across Wheeler to a larger space), right over the train tracks next to the Iron Horse Grill.

    1. Thanks for posting this. I passed by on the way home from Burns and was wondering about it.

        It's owned and run by Phil McGrath, whose "empire" began with Iron Horse and continued with Pony Express before this. I've had a few really good sandwiches there. I appreciate that they offer grilled as well as fried fish.

          I like pony express. I didn't know it was the same people. Great to have another casual option in town to grab a bite before a movie.

      2. Well, it means more to me than a place to "grab a bite". We do go to the Burns often, and it's great to have this place so close, but Seafood "Shacks" like this one are few and far between in the NY Metro. Ubiquitous in RI, Maine and the Mass coast. I am looking forward to trying the lobster roll, at 14.95 seems like a bargain. I'll report back.
