The Grilled Crab Sandwich with Avocado was fabulous. We should have split the sandwich as it was so big we both had to take 1/2 home - it was pricey but excellent. The place was packed so we ate in the bar which was perfect...More

Excellent location, but only marginal food. We've been here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and it's just ok.

Yes I would call them directly. I am sure they can accommodate a large group but they will be better prepared and you will get better service with a heads up to them.

In continuous business since 1927, according to their advertisements. However, the business has been significantly expanded and modenized over a long period of years.
