We stop by on our bikes every Memorial Day weekend!

We like to stop in for a cold one and sit on the big porch in the wonderful rocking chairs. We really enjoy the appetizers they have. Nice ocean view from the porch too. Have been stopping by for years now.

I reviewed Thanksgiving last year and I had to do it again since I am giving it another 5 star review. Once again, dinner was perfect! The turkey was excellent and sides of cranberry sauce, sweet potato, stuffing etc...were great. Our server was very pleasant. Good drink menu and additional appetizer choices. Best part was no clean up!! We will... More

My husband and I go to this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. The enclosed porch makes for a cute atmosphere. The early bird specials are great. My favorite is the crab cake- lots of meat, not a lot of filler.

Although the entertainment and the couple at our table were nice, the food wasn't much to be desired. It came with chicken marsala that did not taste anything like chicken marsala. The chicken tasted funny, more like cornish game hen and the sauce did not have a marsala wine taste.

The sandwiches we had were very good and the service also good. Situated in an old historic hotel, the dining room was kind of musty, in need of updating. It was dark in the middle of the day inspite of all the windows that either needed replacing or cleaning.
