Music on Sundays always a blast. People from all over and the Islanders make this place very friendly. Food is also very good, and great owners and waitstaff.

Excellent food, atmosphere and service. Server was Suzanne, and she was most polite, efficient and informative. We found the restaurant to be quite relaxed, non rushed and mad skillz in the kitchen for both American and seafood.

I wanted a restaurant within walking distance of the beach. The prices were reasonable, and the place quaint. The staff was incredibly friendly, and one young man kept me company while I waited for my Uber afterward.

Fun place, especially hopping on Sunday afternoons 4-7PM with music. But friendly neighborhood place anytime with friendly service. Excellent bar food like fried calamari, french fries, onion rings and often great specials. Fairly priced drinks & local color.
