We saw reviews on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. The Parmesan Soup was excellent as was the Cioppino. We finished the dinner with a s'mores pie.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Burgers had a gourmet twist and the clam chowder was the best I've had in years. Wait staff was friendly, prompt and knowledgeable about the fresh seafood and wine list.

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.
