The clam chowder was something to die for and the lobster quizene was brilliant. The clam chowder came with little crackers. The lobster came with ketchup and french frties. The ginger ale was great. All wraped up with a great view of the sea.

Excellent portions, fresh seafood & quality service make this "THE RIGHT CHOICE!" Nice dinning room and all the tables have an ocean view. Service was the best in the area. I recommend this restaurant to everyone ... its that good!
