We enjoyed the grilled cheese and crab cake sandwich and it was delicious. The wait staff was friendly, cheerful, and efficient. The owner was present and very nice. This is a great place for lunch on your way to Ocean City , NJ.

Wanted to try this place because of Guy Fieri's recommendation. I don't care for crab so I had the Cuban. I've had better. I was not a fan of the pork belly in the sandwich. Also thought it was a bit pricey at $13.50.
