Good chicken and pastry on Tuesdays at lunch! Didn't know there was parking out back the first time we went.

Recently visited for the first time. Burger with crab sauce was delicious. Side fries were good. Good portions, good service, great energy and a very nice atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable--we'll be back!

Locals recommended as a great sandwich shop. Unfortunately it was dinner time and we decided to try some of the other fare on the menu. Ordered the clam chowder very different with a smokey taste, very creamy with lots of chunks of potatoes, bacon and clams but very short on flavor. Crab cake dip was good but cakes were over... More

We had lunch here on our way home from the Outer Banks. The crab dip is fantastic! We also recommend the tri color pasta, it was delicious. Staff was friendly and overall was a nice experience. Other menu items look enticing, we look forward to a return visit!

A great local favorite. Casual dining with very good comfort food. One of the best run restaurants in Washington. Reminds me of when I lived in Nebraska, good food, good people, reasonable prises.

The menu has just the right variety that anyone can find a favorite! From Seafood to beef and chicken with a nice selection of sides, and a great Key Lime Pie for dessert.

I eat here every day for lunch during a weeklong business trip to Washington. Excellent spot -- try the crab burger or shrimp burger. Also a great place for a drink or casual dinner

We stopped at this restaurant on a busy Friday night and enjoyed good food, good cocktails and a fun atmosphere. Service was excellent and we really enjoyed the outside seating area. I highly recommend this restaurant if you're looking for a fun, casual night out.
