Stopped here on drive back from Niagara Falls. Quirky little place with good seafood selection. From our table we could watch boats going up and down the river. Food was tasty and well prepared. Enjoyable meal.

Dirty and gross. Not much else to say. Seafood shack food is better then the other food here. Burgers are not good and the dogs are okay.
