This one was hard to rate. The place is rustic with a capital R, and we found that a very good thing. A fun place to go with another couple, which is what we did. You can sit outside (we did), they have gas heaters that will make it tolerable in December, but wear a windbreaker and you'll be comfy. The quaters are extremely tight and the seating minimalistic and rather uncomfortable. The seafood is fresh and the wait staff friendly and attentive. The problem was that the chef has evidently watched too much Food Network TV where the so-called pros scream for more salt; the food here was way too salty for everyone's taste, and that was too bad, because it would have otherwise been delicious. This is great place to go when you want something authentic (sans salt). Looks like a dump from the outside (part of its ultimate charm) and parking is oh-so tight and extremely limited. Sits right over the water like the name suggests and is a very good value over-all.
