Love to go for happy hour and to sit on the second level to enjoy our meals and watch the boats going by. Their clam strip baskets and mozzarella planks are great with ice cold beers! Always look forward to going back!

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.
