We try to always sit outside when we come here on vacation....tonight was a little chilly and breezy so they lit the outdoor propane heaters which really helped.

the location and setting is outdoor deck seafood anywhere. We had a salad and the blacked grouper which was nicely spiced and juicy. A very good fish sandwich. The gumbo was quite nice as well.

Great clams and soft shells! Paty, Sandra and the Vermont woodchuck LINDSLAY were delightful servers! A bit chilly but with the warmers very pleasant outside! We have been twice this week and almost back to the old days! We have come ther for over twenty years.
