Lovely lunch and location

This restaurant is truly located on a dock overlooking the water. Four of us were there for lunch and ordered their Manhattan Clam Chowder, crab cake sandwich, chicken wrap and cheeseburger.

This restaurant is truly located on a dock overlooking the water. Four of us were there for lunch and ordered their Manhattan Clam Chowder, crab cake sandwich, chicken wrap and cheeseburger. Everything was well seasoned and prepared. The portions are generous and the staff is helpful and attentive. Would definitely return there.

Complimentary lemonade or coffee on the porch are great beginnings, if you have to wait for a table, which can be the case on a Summer Weekend. But, breakfast here is worth the wait, as evidenced by the returning diners. The regular menu has many creative dishes, many that reflect the shore location and focus on fresh, area produce, and...

A friend and I went for lunch. We really wanted to sit outside but despite the beautiful weather, the patio wasn't open. It is bright and sunny with some nautical decor. I had the chicken salad club. The chicken salad was very nice and the bacon was flavorful-definitely not cheap bacon! My friend had the fried shrimp and french fries,... More

Had breakfast here with the family on father's day. We had a reservation for 7 and had a great round table by the windows overlooking the water. We were seated on time, service was fast, we weren't rushed and everything was good. We will be back!

We love taking our grandchildren here for breakfast. The food is excellent. The service is so friendly and the atmosphere is relaxing. We love taking the kids around the dock to read the boat names after and watch the wildlife while we eat. And there is rarely food left to take home- they eat it all!!

Love going here for breakfast. Great food and friendly staff. Look for the daily specials sometimes you catch a great omelette on there or something really different.

My family and I always come here for breakfast when we stay at our nearby shore house. Quaint and clean restaurant that puts out a lot of food from their small kitchen. It is also open for lunch, but we have never tried a lunch here. Breakfast is fine enough. Very nice menu selections and a daily white board of... More
