Atmosphere is memorable, next to the water where you can watch boats go by. Laid back spot that handles volumes of visitors with a simplified menu and order approach. Food is good but I wouldnt go so far as to call it great.

Best crab cakes hands down. The wait is usually long so don't be in a hurry. Once you receive your meal you will understand why the wait is long. The honor system For beer and wine is great for those who like to serve themselves....More

Very friendly staff, nice deck to sit by the water but the food is undesirable. Poorly seasoned, taste and odor of unfresh fish/shrimp, the only side that was tasty were the french fries. Even the salad and dressing were not appetizing.
