Go for the steamed seafood Go again to be recognized by the locals Authentic and reliable just don't show up with a large party and expect immediate seating you might get it but it isn't a large place so you might have to sit at the bar or come back in a few minutes after doing some shopping Cheers to...

My husband and I went here for our last night on our honeymoon. We wanted to go somewhere rather nice - he looked up the menu online and it appeared to be just what we wanted. We dressed up and went to dinner! Although the prices were "fancy restaurant" prices, the restaurant itself was not fancy. We sat super close... More

I went to this restaurant recently with a group of five. We arrived at 4:55. We were told that they would not start serving for dinner for five more minutes. As it was cold outside and we had an infant accompanying us, I asked if we could just be seated. The restaurant was basically empty, save for some folks at... More

North banks is a very friendly restaurant. A favorite person we go back to see often is Mike! Remembers us from one season to the next. Pasta salad is terrific! Their specials of the day are just that...special! Fish tacos and wraps wonderful! Crab cakes are a favorite.

Best meal ever! We went for dinner and it was so good. They had a nice drink selection including beer. Then we had the buffalo tuna bites for an appetizer. I can't even describe how good they were. My husband had the puppy drum for dinner and I had the filet. They were served with potatoes and a veggie com... More

reviews here were intriguing, but I've learned that being here in the off season means you have to find out if they are still open. This one was, and we had a fabulous meal. All five folks happy. We will probably come here at least one more time. I had the fresh fish, superbly prepared. Shrimp were off the boat... More

We were referred here by our hotel. The appetizer of onion straws were great. I had crab cakes and they were slightly cooked too much and not too flavorful. My wife had a pasta sea food dish that was good, but not great.
