Love this place! We ate outside last year, and this year we sat at the inside bar and ate. The food was great, and the bartenders were very nice! Would highly recommend!

A really nice place and a wide choice on the menu. Would recommend to anyone who enjoys seafood. The steamers were a bit crazy but the lobster was great.

Went there for lunch - good food, fast service and a cute gift shop. Would recommend - especially if you are headed out or coming back from a boat ride.

Great service and food! They have a patio you can sit at, or you can sit inside with a view of the harbor.
