What a great place to eat. The food is outstanding but the service was top of the line. Our waitress never missed a beat. The Cesar salad with grilled chicken was super yummy and the burgers with fries were awesome. You could see the man...More

We always stop in here when in Carmel. They know how to make a Bloody Mary! Good lunch spot with ample selection of soups, salads, sandwiches and fresh seafood. Very cozy place, not for those who are claustrophobic.

Small and cozy, nice bar to sit and slurp oysters. We had Oysters Shuckafellar, broiled in the shell with an herbed parmesan topping that are just no to be missed. Terrific! They have New England Style creamy clam chowder, tomato broth based Manhattan Clam Chowder,...More

I don't think so. Did not see any in the restaurant. Room area is tight, close and crowded. Probably not the best idea.
