We made reservations for a group of 8 and they had the table ready for us when we arrived. They had a great selection... More

Clam appetizer done almost Rockefeller style and was fantastic. Manhattan clam chowder is consistent here for the last 10 years at least- always great. Had a pasta entree and it was a large portion and cooked as advertised (All portions are large). They do not have a liquor license so BYOB. Overall a good spot to have a meal in... More

We visited this little cafe twice on vacation and really enjoyed the food we had. The breaded chicken sandwich was simple and satisfying. Take-out orders were packaged nicely with all the condiments and sides you could want. Great menu options for those with gluten allergies. Extremely friendly staff on the phone and in person.

Our best meals on the island by far during our week-long stay. I'm not sure why this place isn't ranked higher, but it certainly needs to be. New England clam chowder is excellent and on the thick side. If you order an entree, it comes with sesame crackers and a delicious cream cheese, cheddar cheese and horseradish spread. Some of...
