“Always a tasty treat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

The food is always very we'll made and delicious. Enjoyed three of my four evenings here for dinner. Highly recommend the lobster roll, crab nachos, garlic mussels, fillet mignon, and vegetable panini. During our several meals here I did not hear one complaint from any of our guests. Everyone seemed to enjoy. As an added perk it is a BYOB! And the carrot cake as well as raspberry sorbet were delicious!

“Fine meal but variable attention to detail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

With torrential rains falling, a large group gathered for breakfast under slightly leaky awnings. My meal of crab cake, fried eggs, Bay Seasoning home fries and toast was excellent. The crab cakes are almost solid crab, eggs exactly as ordered. Colleagues results ranging from equally good to various levels of mix ups and confusion. Similar looking entrees ended up at the wrong location, included sides required several requests. Minor things considering the crowd driven in by the weather, but at vacation location prices (more than you'd probably want to pay at home, but what the heck we're on vacation) you think they should be better able to handle. Staff were very considerate and available to handle the little issues.

Would gladly give them another opportunity to excel.

“Quality food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Good was good and seafood was fresh! Oyster po boy sandwich was very fresh and tasty!! Crab dip was delicious as well. The lobster roll was pretty fresh but lacked flavor using possibly too much mayo but still good for being away from NE.

“Very good food, location and byob”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

Been here before, another visit on most recent trip to the island. Food is always good and they have an extensive menu. I had the fried clams and they were excellent - other dishes were the fried calamari, zucchini boat (not the fav, but different), shrimp and pasta, and tuna. Good service and they have nice wine buckets and glasses for your byob.
