The other reviews sum it up pretty well. This is obviously a long time place for the locals. It is homy and not very fancy, but worth the stop. Prices are very reasonable. It is located right on the main street of this walkable town.

They only have 5 tables, plus seats at the counter, but the food is really good and with very reasonable prices. My wife had Haddock and I had a hamburger. Both were delicious.
