This is a super cute restaurant at the marina - we sat outside overlooking the boat docks. Everything was very fresh/home made and the service was outstanding - we can't wait to visit again next year!

Was originally headed somewhere else for lunch but changed mind, googled restaurants in area and found Grandma Dot's. What a great surprise, wonderful harborside location at the marina and the food was incredible - enjoyed the crab meatballs and grouper salad. Highly recommend.
