We came here after a day of kayaking with friends. Our waitress was nice. We all enjoyed our meals. Boyfriend had scallops. He said there were very good. Our friends had pasta which they enjoyed. I had lobster which was GREAT!!

This is my 2nd review of this restaurant. I did the first in October, 2013 and said the place needed a face lift. Since that review, it has indeed undergone some physical changes, making it more appealing.

3 out of 3 baked stuffed dinners with lobster sauce where over cooked. Absolutely dry...new owner has an extremely bad attitude and is argumentative. Was my favorite local restaurant, will never go back.

Food quality is average for evening meals.. Relatively diverse menu. Offers an outstanding breakfast menu on weekends, however. Very talented and popular breakfast Chef. Parking is more than sufficient with outside parking area. Service is friendly, but not timely.

The restaurant changed hands a few years ago and the food is tastier now! Our favorite quick meal is the chicken sandwich. They marinate the chicken which gives it an incredible flavor. We get the fried chicken but grilled is also an option. The size of the breast on the sandwich is substantial! The fries that come with it are... More

We stopped by after my wives graduation from St Josephs college. We had the fisherman's platter which was enough to share for 3... We ordered steamers and crab cakes also. All were great and the service was tops!
