Consistently good and great menu

Very reasonable prices and a creative but down to earth menu. Friendly, but upscale- casual atmosphere. Wine list is not extensive but good and reasonably priced wines. One of the favorites of locals if not the favorite.

Our meal started with fresh hot oysters on the half shell that were excellent. The salad was very fresh and the New England style clam chowder was memorable. We had a seafood dish with shrimp and scallops that was very good. We particularly liked the fact that none of the dishes tasted salty as is so often the case. The... More

Whether you are there for lunch or dinner, you shouldn't be disappointed. If you are there for lunch, the burger is excellent, and so are the salads. Dinner is more expensive and worth it.

Our food was outstanding; oysters, lamb chops, cheese sautéed that started all of us. The arrangements were smooth and our requests handled graciously. The best Caesar Salad ever. The fish special was delicate and had wonderful flavor combinations. A Happy Birthday was celebrated by all. Can't wait to go back!

My wife & I enjoyed a lunch of excellent shrimp risotto with glasses of Pinot Blanc in pretty Aiken. Service was quick & attentive. Prices were reasonable. The raspberry pie with vanilla ice cream topped off a good experience.
