To start, Peggy is AMAZING! Not only is she a delight, she can whip up some killer cocktails! While you're waiting on their famous garlic parmesan homemade rolls and truly the best Italian food, Peggy will amaze you with some local history and other fun facts if she really likes you! :-) My party of four loved our experience and...

We didn't have chance to eat here but Peggy makes the best cocktails, we started with the best Bloody Mary's, then traditional Long Island ice tea and a raspberry then melon martini! Delicious!!!

This is an old favorite, somewhat out of the way, nothing fancy but great Italian food and lots of it. We love the pizza but they have plenty of other choices. Not typical resort town atmosphere or food, more like a great local pizzeria that you'd find a lot further north!

Stopped in the back door bar for a couple drinks while the kids where enjoying some attractions. Met Peggy at the bar and had a fabulous time chatting with her and her staff. All the staff seamed like a family there. I have to say I didn't eat there but if I was hungry I would of. Had the opportunity... More
