Try the crab cakes

Loved the crab cakes and the cole slaw. We had a light dinner with one order split for two with a glass of wine.

This was about a block away from our hotel. The staff was so nice. We had a lovely chicken Caesar salad. They have a full bar and they serve Coke products. Nice fireplace; excellent menu. We'll go back for sure.

The fresh ingredients are all local, the sardines exceptional and the stuffed mushrooms exquisite. We recommend the garlic fries and daily soup creation.
