Due to limited hours during the off season, we were only able to visit once, for breakfast. Standard diner fare, which is exactly what we wanted, and large breakfast will stick by you all day. Plan to return for lunch and dinner during the spring...More

Had the captain's platter. It has fish, shrimp, scallops, clam strips, and a crab cake. Plus two sides for $20. Very good, not greasy. The crab cakes were very "crabby " , unlike many other restaurants where it is mostly filler. Long time restaurant.
