The prices are more than reasonable and great people. This little town is full of charm and everywhere we went we felt very welcomed.

This place is fun. We didn't come for dinner so I cannot comment on that, but were walking by after hours and heard some live music and decided to stop in. Friendly, good music, nice draft beer selection. Enjoyed the visit.

Amazing shrimp fried tacos! We go as often as we are in the area! Go if you can. Fun entertainment about town too. Good family dining. Oysters to die for. Shrimp Louis are terrific! Locals performers on the weekends and some evenings too

I loved the staff and the feel of the crowd. Very comfortable and real. Their chowder was yummy while being unique from the typical creamy potato style. I preferred it's rich broth and would recommend trying it. My sons Scampi and my steamers were heavy...More
