Good Food

Loved the location but not allowed to sit on the outside patio as they make this a 21+ area and since we had kids with had to sit inside where the tables did seem a little close to each other. That being said, the food was very tasty and pretty good prices.

We had deep fried oysters and a hamburger. Very mediocre. Only bright spot was sitting outside where our dog could join us. Over-rated experience.

We had dinner on the outside patio with our little dog. Glad they allowed this as it was too hot to keep her in car & hotel will not permit dogs in room without us! Allowed us to have a lovely dinner!

Disappointingly average food with high prices. Our Hamburger and fish sandwich meals were satisfying, but not remarkable. The atmosphere is a bit stale and dark. The service was satisfactory, but I had to ask for water and a lettuce and tomato for my sandwich a couple times.

Ate in the lounge one evening, when the outside patio was crowded and the bartender/waiter was attentive and professional. In fact all the staff was friendly and seemed really to care about their jobs. The rest of the diners looked as if they were all having fun, and eating well. So did we! Would definitely recommend and return. The outdoor... More

This is a must eat place. IT has a nice deck to enjoy food and drink. If it's cooler out they have a fire rock pit to sit around. Good selection on menu

And it was clean with a nice ambiance, something all restaurants should have but is lacking sometimes. My wife had an excellent chicken caesar salad with a cup of chowder which we both think was the best WE'D ever eaten(lots... More
