Enjoyable visit

We enjoyed the pleasant surroundings and friendly welcome. The home made Clam chowder was excellent. They kindly mailed me an item I left behind there

We were passing through and stopped for lunch. The lunch was okay...average. The server was great though! Also the location is a plus right on the waterfront.

Wonderful service and good food, right on the water! The server was very friendly and even brought a bowl of water out to the deck for our dog! The oysters were a little overcooked but the clam chowder is one of the best I've ever had.

Everyone else had the coleslaw and my niece gobbled it up! The kids' cheeseburger was huge and a little messy. My sister had a special bratwurst meal. Overall good food &... More

We ate this place because our other favorite place had closed. This place out outside seating, which we did. The service was top notch! But the fish and chips, were to die for! Really the best we have had! Just perfect! We will be coming back!

Thank Richad B
