The place is SO NOISY, all you can do is eat your food. Good thing, the food is usually pretty good (not always). Very good fish fry. Clean toilets. Handsome bartender (so his sister says).

We had company come from out of state. They wanted a nicer restaurant to eat at. The prices were reasonable for the quality of food. Everything was excellent. Cooked to perfection. It was a nice comfortable atmosphere.
