This is where the locals go for seafood and farm to table locavore cuisine. Everything is fresh and mostly locally sourced, including the microbrews. Nice ambiance, too. It's right downtown and very friendly.

The restaurant is noisy and the tables are VERY close together. It is great for 2-4 people but not great for larger parties. Also gets quite warm due to close seating. Food so far has been pretty good.
