I usually go during boating season. But this was the first time I came through the front door. Eating outside on their patio was better. The food was okay but nothing to rave about. Maybe the salt air in the summer makes it taste better, . The service was very good and the drinks were great , but the food... More

The service was excellent. The food was good , but for a broiled plate there was bread crumbs all over it and some of the seafood was a bit over cooked. It was good seafood def fresh. They do give you alot of food!

I also know flavors because I cook every day, since I was a teen, and only when you go to a restaurant and get something you have know idea what is it, you... More

Food is plentiful; garlic bread is delicious; seafood salad is fresh; mushroom salad was devine; shrimp scampi was great; fried ravioli was yummie; corn fritters were so tasty. Everyone at the entire restaurant was having a great time; you can tell that the people who dine here are all regulars. It's a place for comfort food; it's loud but everyone... More
