It was a fluke when I first walked through the door a couple years ago, and only travel out east when I want to spoil myself. Was last there 25 Sep 16. As always awesome!

The food is not good. It is not prepared or served properly. I got a toothpick in my drink. I did not like the attitude when I had the problem. I would not recommend.

We had been there three times previously and everything was average or above. The menus we were given at the restaurant this time barely represented the menu on-line and the chef who prepared our entrees was not too familiar with what was on the menu. The waitress did not give us cornbread normally a standard until we asked for it.... More

This is one of the best gluten free restaurants around. The lobster roll when in season is amazing. We love their cheeseburgers and salad wraps. Very friendly with great service

Caught a pricey lunch here; although, there was nothing in the place that was above average...not décor, quality of furniture, or food. I ate a grilled cheese sandwich, gluten free. The bread was good. My companion ordered a hamburger...not gluten free. Best we could come up with was average.

The meal was OK. The glass of wine provided was a little more than a shot glass and the gin & tonic was mostly ice with very little spirits. The bar crowd was very loud.

A nice atmosphere with an eclectic menu. We were there for dinner and enjoyed a fresh seafood chowder and fresh-caught seafood dinner.
