We both had the scallops, PERFECTLY cooked. I had the chowder, to die for! Sadly a family recipe and if I were told she would have to kill me. A beautiful town and great place to eat!

Excellent gluten free options if you have Celiac Disease. Slow service. Pleasant surroundings, located in town. Reasonably priced.

We had a reservation and recommend the same. Another busy restaurant for a Tuesday night in September. Our table of four sampled the menu with scallops, fresh salads, lobster pastas and pizza. Everyone enjoyed their meals and desserts.
