Cauliflower Soup amazing as was the escargot, lobster roll and yellow tail flounder. I must have ordered the yellow tail six times last year. The two pieces were much thinner this year.

Popular local restaurant that is open year round. New owners kept popular old favorites but have added some new items. Busy bar scene.

I went with a friend and had the flounder piccata. It was light, very tasty, well prepared and just wonderful. The waitress was attentive, and very friendly. I recommend it highly

I stopped by last night for dinner seeking something besides sandwiches. The servers seated me at the bar (my request) and I instantly felt at ease. Paul, the bartender, was right there with a friendly smile and real hospitality. Before I knew it, my gin...More
