Fresh and clean seafood. Steamers, oysters, fresh fish, chowder, fries. Also a good menu for landlubbers. Friendly staff, good drink selection, fair prices.

Good beer and good food in a friendly small town atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but good food. French fries were particularly tasty.

We had a great time sitting outside and enjoying the meal and the town simultaneously. That was friendly and accommodating adjustments to our ordering from the menu. The food was a bit pricey, but fresh. If we are ever in the area again we will...More
