What a deal! We had a small lunch and then went there for an early bird special. It was raining anyway! We sat right by the water while the waves splashed on our window. Great food! Lovely atmosphere!

P Town standby, great for tourists, standard seafood options, with more creative specials. Fair beer selection. A great place to take first timers.

I would assume so. They usually take reservations. But your best bet is to call Fanizzi's directly.
