This was our first visit, but it won't be our last. The service, prices, portions, ambience were pleasing. Chay was our attentive server. We started with a huge bowl of hot clam chowder with a rich buttery flavor covering lots of clams, potatoes and bacon....It's a meal. My wife's Mediterranean Cod smothered in gobs of goat cheese, roasted peppers, sauteed spinach on rice was 3 meals in 1. Lots of leftovers!! I enjoyed the 2 carnitas tacos with black beans and yellow rice. The tacos were covered with sweet, pickled onion that added lots of flavor. When we left, we were impressed with lots of outside tables and diners enjoying the warm sun and delicious food. We'll be back!More

I had the coconut shrimp, made fresh, surely the best I have ever had. My husband had cup of soup and half sandwich. Their soup is made daily, piping hot, never salty and absolutely delicious. Their menu is extensive, something for everyone. Their prices are...extremely reasonable for the quality of food. Joy, our bartender, always a smiling face and makes great drinks. Owner Mary Beth rolls up her sleeves pitching in with the staff. This restaurant aims to please and succeeds!!More

If a dumpy bar with bad food is your thing you'll like this place. Staff was not friendly and neither was clientele.

We have visited several times, both for lunch and for dinner. Food and service have always been great. We love the grouper, but also the fried shrimp, which are large, and lightly breaded. It is hard to decide. Service has always been great, but we...especially like Joe, who keeps thing moving quickly. Prices are reasonable, but the Happy Hour drinks are an added plus. The $4 wine has always been great.More

Excellent Fish and great chips. The batter was fabulous and the fish moist and flaky. The chips stayed crisp and didn’t get soggy. It came with lemon and tartar sauce. lemon sl
