A friend and I stopped here for dinner on our drive back north from DC. This was in a convenient location, and although the place was packed (on a Saturday night), we were told it was a 20-minute wait for a table, but could eat at the bar immediately. We chose the bar, and all staff were super friendly, helpful,... More

Lovely restaurant with adorable beach decor. Great happy hour specials. Food is yummy and drinks are always good. Can be a bit loud because the ceilings are so high and it's a big space but it's part of the charm. There are large booths and a nice big bar area. Great outdoor area when the weather is nice. Food always... More

My friends and I went for lunch. Their lobster bisque was fabulous. Each spoonful had tiny pieces of lobster. Would have it again. We all ordered the shrimp salad sandwich on an open croissant with lettuce, tomato and onion, along with fries. The sandwich was so loaded with medium size shrimp that we had to eat it with a knife... More

I've shown up with a short time window (theater tickets within the hour), and the wait staff have gone out of their way to recommend selections and get us food quickly.
