Great little bistro with great food! There was a small wait to be seated, but we just walked around the area and they called us when our table was ready!

The calm chowder is probably one of the best I've ever tasted. Corn, potato, thick and flavorful. We ordered a bowl to take home. So good.

Used to be really good, however our last two dinners have been pretty poor and last night was a disaster. There was a new item offered last night: Brisket Bacon Jam Burger - sounds great, eh? The meat was cooked beyond recognition, so much so...that there was no juice - none. Found one little dab of bacon jam. The only good thing was they put some coleslaw on top of the Brisket. Did I mention over cooked? It was black, dry, and tasteless. And can anyone tell me how you can overcook a burger so bad and yet the cheese slice isn't melted??? In their defense, the sweet potato fries are killer and the wait staff is very pleasant. Unfortunately, she did not come back to check on the meal. I'm hopeful that someone will read this and make some changes, til then there are two bars in town that do a much better job and have a lot less expensive burgers.More

We sat outside on the patio with another couple for lunch. We were visiting from Canada and staying at Rockaway Beach. Our first visit but not our last! Amazing food and efficient friendly service. The highlight of our vacation! The seafood chowder was the best...I have ever had. WOW! Oysters, fish and chips were absolutely spot on and excellent. What a remarkable place. A big Thank You for your most excellent food and service!More

What a great place! Fast and friendly service and great food! Hubby had the Ruben and thought it was a 9.9/10 (he’s picky too) I had the pork tots.. I thought it was tasty, but then saw the chowder another person got and regretted my...choice! Got the beautiful cinnamon roll to go! Overall, great experience! You won’t be disappointed!More

Stopped in for lunch and was just so impressed. The seafood chowder and the BLT were excellent. Had something like 10 beers on tap. Equally nice was the great attitude of the staff. Helpful, friendly, nice. We look forward to going back.

The owners were so nice and accommodating, and we had a great time. I am going out of my way to eat there next time I'm in the area.

We stopped for take-out. Good food, ready before they promised it. Only slip-up was not including ketchup for the curly fries. Very friendly and helpful counter staff.

Stopped by for lunch. I had the Blueberry Goat Cheese Burger - I know, but trust me, it was so good!! And it had bacon! And avocado! And other stuff! And what appeared to be a fresh house made burger bun. It was a large...mass of goodness! I think this may be the yummiest burger of my entire life. My husband had the bacon bleu cheese burger. It was also a mass of goodness (but mine was better!) LOL! The fries were nicely cooked and seasoned and quite delicious! The servers were very nice, there was outdoor seating, and the tables were distanced. We would definitely visit again if ever in the area.More
