I stopped here for lunch thinking it was a restaurant I went to about 30 years ago, but it wasn't. I almost left, but I am sure glad I didn't! My husband ordered the clam chowder and once I tasted his, I had to have my own. It was right up there with Legal Seafood's clam chowder! Our sandwiches were... More

I had the cranberry buttermilk pancakes and they were perfect. Fluffiest I've ever seen. Tasted so good they barely needed syrup. The serving size was also perfect. My family also tried the blueberry french toast which was equally as good. I will say the brunch menu wasn't huge, but I didn't care.

A really pretty place with great food & helpful service. Particularly enjoyed the clam chowder though it was all good. Service was slower as the tables filled but it never took too long & the food was well worth waiting for.

We were looking for an early dinner and stopped in here. The Cape Cod beer was excellent but the dishes at $15-20 were very small, albeit tasty enough. There was also no atmosphere in the place which was dead. Thus the 2* rating reflects the lack of ambience and the very poor value for money aspect.

We had breakfast there, and then went back for lunch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was good, both for breakfast and lunch. There's an area to sit outside, and a (very)small counter. We also got some take-out. Very casual, and homey. We recommend it.

We had breakfast here three times. There are a few breakfast places open and we tried others but we found the service very good here. They have a fairly wide variety of breakfast items available. My wife is a lighter eater and our waitress said, well if you don't want 3 pancakes, you can order one. And, yes, they only... More

It was very busy but they accommodated us with 2 seats at the bar. Food menu was varied. Had a lovely seafood platter.

Very cool outdoor cafe and restaurant. Very casual and great friendly staff. Yummy clam chowder and the lobster rolls were nice and lumpy but needed a kick to the mix.

Small inside with small portions. My husband ordered the lobster quesadilla. The onions really overpowered the lobster flavor leaving him with tasting onions only and not the lobster. I had the chicken salad with cranberries which was served in a hot dog roll. The chicken almost looked like tuna salad due to it being cut into too small pieces. I... More
