All the food is excellent however, I like the Moby Dick fish sandwich the best. They have pleanty of craft beers. The only problem is that there are onlt a few tables so you must get there early or wait until one clears.

Stopped in for lunch and ate some very tasty food. I enjoyed a Cod fish sandwich with cheese and fries. My wife had the mushroom burger with fries. We both loved it and ate the whole thing!

Menu is very diverse with twists on Asian and European favorites. Great sandwiches, variety of beer on tap, reasonable-priced and very cozy (ltd. seating).

We arrived for a late lunch on Christmas Eve and everyone working greeted us with big smiles. Enjoyed a good holiday beer and blackened grouper fish tacos, along with very tasty salsa. A fun, festive place to relax - thanks!

Good food and atmosphere, reasonable prices. If you do not want to out for the evening and have another couple visiting or socializing, just use their Take Out Service. We love their Fish and Chips. John L, Southport.
