Been coming for years. Fresh seafood prepared daily- the boat is docked just outside :) Phenomenal atmosphere. Phenomenal staff. Phenomenal orange crushes!! Music on weekends in the summer outside. All around a great place to kill a couple hours away from the traffic.

Great waterside ambience with superb service and very good food and drinks. The classic local crab cakes were loaded with large chunks of crab and minimum filler. The sea scallops were huge and broiled to perfect consistency. The lemon drop martini was surprisingly good and...More
