“Much better options in the area”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

I've grabbed a few sandwhiches here over the past few months and have been less then impressed. The quality is average and when asking for an item or two extra or less, you met with grief & confusion. I don't mind paying the same price for less or more for extra but the side of attitude isn't necessary.

The exterior has also become a bit of an eye sore to us locals. Signs all over the place and now loud & intrusive music blasts out from their entrance via live music. Skip this eye sore and try one of the numerous bakeries downtown or jump across the bridge for some other great options. I hate to poo-poo a local business but sometimes the truth stings.

“Convenient yet not positive to this visitor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Seemed to specialize in subs at the time. The owner did not want to leave some items out of the sub. I paid for it, I ought to get it how I want it.

“Very disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We ate here on a Friday night expecting a fine meal from a local Ma and Pa operation. It was a Ma and Pa operation but the food and service was rather poor to bad. We waited over an hour for our meal of a dozen oysters and a shrimp scampi dinner. The oysters were very good and done to my liking, but the shrimp scampi was inedible and my dinner companion sent it back. The shrimp were cooked overdone and the pasta was completely devoid of flavor. The menu is very limited. We will refrain from dining here again.

“Great little hole in the wall. Must try a sandwich & chowder.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

A little roadside place with Excellecnt BBQ subs. Wonderful seafood chowder. You think it's just a deli but the food is fantastic. The lack of atmosphere is absolutely charming!!! Music outside. Great little lunch place!
