Neat interior. Tasty sweets. Loved the quotes and clocks with different time zones. Very impressive menu. Food we all love but made better/fancier. I drink from the mug that I got from there with fond memories

Fabulous bowl of chowder with fresh chunks of delicious lobster and a light creamy broth. Grilled cheese was buttery and crispy on the outside. Arnold Palmer lemonade ice tea is refreshing and home made. Finished off with outstanding peanut butter pie!
