“Named their salad after the organic farm. Local and fresh”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Seems like locals come out and join the travelers in good beer and good food. Would go back in a minute.

“Service.....what service?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Ok I am not picky but any stretch of the imagination, however, after you sit without a drink for 15 mins you start to get frustrated. So we walk up to the bar and get our own drinks, ok fine. But when it continues to happen come on!!! Management needs to step up the bar service and by the way when your guest orders appetizers you should bring little plates!

“Fresh fish - casual”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

For decades, we have both lived at the beach and are pretty critical of our fish meals. This was a very good meal. Had clams and dh had shrimp po boy. Casual, right on the water.
