Thanks for the great review! We have whole fresh lobster every night on our menu, and our Chef frequently creates features by adding local seafood and stuffing the lobsters, so come try one on your next date night! Thanks again for dining with us!

It is fun to wait for a table in the pouring rain while dodging streams of water. The manager & waitstaff did what they could to move the crowd through the greatly reduced space available. We were seated after the squall. The seafood soup would...More
