The four of us all had the Manhattan Chowder that was excellent. I also had the the buffalo burger with sautéed onions that was very good. My wife had the fried oysters that was also very good. Service was excellent...definitely worth going back. And I hear that it's great for dinner.

Their specials are quite interesting and are in the $20's. Place is hard to find but worth the trip. Would go back!
