We were looking for someplace to eat with friends and as it was just before season and not all restaurants were open. We found this place and were very pleased.

Good Food, Friendly Service and they have a tavern section or a dining section so you have a choice when you get there. And I believe they are open almost all year.

We have been here for lots of dinners. It's local. It's downtown. And many of our friends like the joint. However, we have found that the food is variable. Some people in a party rave about their dinners and others smile and leave a lot...More

We came down to check out our shore house after a winter storm. As it was off season, not many places were open. Saw this place and decided to stop. Sat down right away and ordered quickly. Food was good. Quick and friendly service. Waitress...More
