This looks like a beer battered blooming onion kind of place, but it is a step up from that, and here and there they make some great dishes.
For example, their lobster roll was the best our party tasted on our off the island on our trip. Really meaty and fresh, toasted bread, not too much else, yum. They do a good job on the whole menu, but that , and a "homewrecker hotdog" were the big standouts. Don't expect too many healthy fare choices, of course. Service is efficient and warm.
In deep off season they are one of only two restaurants open, and the menu shrinks.
