Looking for a relaxing lunch place on a Sunday that served clam chowder. Found this place by chance. The BEST clam chowder! Everything else was great as well! The atmosphere was great. Service was great. Oyster shooters! Just what I was looking for.

I've seen a few outdoor tables (on the sidewalk) from time to time and some of the people there had dogs with them. Why not phone the restaurant?
