Best crab sandwich ever, super fresh and tasty, delicious! the clam chowder is great as well. Try to avoid peak lunch hours so you can sit down (there are only a couple of outdoor picnic tables). Great place to relax and enjoy the fantastic views.

We stop in here whenever we're in town or passing through. I think their clam chowder is the best and it's consistently good. It's a fun dining experience sharing picnic tables with people you don't know. Service is always good, friendly and fast. Their sourdough is also good. It's too bad they don't have beer or wine. I wasn't at... More

As others have mentioned, this is a small restaurant with a limited menu and seating. Nevertheless, the clam chowder and crab sandwich was well worth the trip. This is a great place to stop if you want great food without any of the fuss.

We love this place for the clam chowder as well as the crab sandwich (awesome). There is a casual setting with outside seating (benches) and you have to order from a counter menu that is inside. There is limited seating and sometimes the outside seating can be windy so it can be uncomfortable at times. This is fun place to... More

Quite disappointed in the clam chowder after having heard rave reviews. Over the top amount of garlic and thin on the clams. On the other hand staff was very friendly and the picnic tables were clean.
