“Always delicious, excellent service; welcomes families!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

Best food/service/ambiance at Delaware beaches... and fairly priced. Can be packed during summer (less so for lunch :) and no reservations. Also has attached 'take-away' fish market w/best fresh fish and some prepared specials to enjoy at home... Long-time locals go here regularly!

“Great lunch spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We ate here for lunch and the menu was great. Ordered the Mahi and it was fresh and cooked perfectly. The side options were good and the house potatoes were fantastic. The lobster bisque was awesome too. Great place to have a couple of cocktails and enjoy the beach life. Service was friendly and efficent.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My wife and I have eaten here many times and the food has always been great. The staff are pretty goo and the food normally comes out quicklly regardless of how busy it is. Be prepared for a long wait during busy weekends.

“Not much class”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

The food is generally good and the menu quite varied; large portions. However, on my last trip, I ordered a plate of oysters on the half-shell as an appetizer, and one of the oysters was bad (which I didn't realize until I'd eaten it). This is going to happen occasionally with uncooked food, and the staff was apologetic and replaced that oyster with one good one, but they charged me in full for the plate of oysters, and a restaurant with class would probably have taken the oysters off the bill. I was left with the impression that the staff and management don't care much for repeat business.

We as a management team strive to exceed our guests expectations and by replacing that oyster we thought that had been accomplished.

Thank you,

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is always busy! You may have to wait a while for a seat, but trust me it's worth the wait. They have a terrific menu and a great bar! The bar will help you kill time while you wait for your table. You can eat inside or outside. Good service too!
