My boyfriend and I were here in May of 2014. We ordered fresh seafood.. And was it ever fresh! A variety of choices such as oysters, crab, shrimp, clams and lobster. Prices are a bit high.. But worth the quality of food you get. The restaurant also offers valet parking. Amazing service. We will be back if ever in Atlantic... More

Found this place lived up to the excellent reviews. Seafood tasted fresh. Had an excellent lobster cocktail. Wine list was ample and reasonable. Crab cakes may be the best and freshest tasting I've ever had. prices reasonable. Cheese pie desert very good.
