Sat on the deck overlooking the boat launch and had excellent chowder and halibut dinner. The beer was icy cold, I was very pleased with the food, as well as the service.

I had one bite of shrimp and had to spit it out. Clam chowder was lackluster. Not sure what all the fuss is about. Went elsewhere to be satisfied.
