We enjoyed this restaurant as it first began as Quincy's.....we always sit at the bar and have steamed oysters! They always have great daily specials and the steam pots are great too!

This has got to be one of the best places to eat around here. I have been a regular customer ever since the first time my wife and I heard about this place. Great grilled and fried seafood, fresh steaks, and wonderful service.
