Courthouse Seafood Restaurant

In 1912 Courthouse Seafood Market opened in the Portuguese community of East Cambridge. The Damaso family came here from Portugal and like many others found Court House Seafood Market to be a touch of home in their new land.

Young Al Damaso's father asked the owner if he might have a job for his son. In 1967 Al bought the Market from the retiring Mr. Travis. Al expanded the scope of the market, then came upon the idea of preparing the fish so local families would have a place to buy quality food that they did not have to cook at home.

In 1987 the Damaso family opened the restaurant next door from the market. Courthouse Seafood Restaurant is thriving today, staffed by family members, along with an extended family of dedicated coworkers.
