Always a "but" - right? Our daughter and I took my wife there for a birthday dinner. We did not have reservations and the place is rather small - but there was no problem being seated. I was the odd-ball who did not order crab...More

Breakfast was tasty, we ordered a crab omelette and a side of scrapple. They were out of fruit that was listed on the dish and they made no substitutions. We were told no substitutions allowed. Over priced for what we were served.
