We had a great seafood meal here while sitting outside on the porch enjoying the quiet, relaxing town. Try the corn and crab chowder!

Our mistake was not to look at menu before we went in. We were looking for a nice dinner for our 49th anniversary. We were seated and brought nothing but a menu which did not have dinners that we were looking for. Dog at next...More
