Food and service was excellent! Sat out by the water and it was quiet and very relaxing. We had blackened tuna on a Caesar salad and blackened salmon. It came with tartar sauce but I would not suggest drowning the flavor with anything!

Who doesn't enjoy a waterfront view at a restaurant??? The atmosphere was lovely....a rainy day lunch watching the water from a window table. The menu is usual beach fare, but it was so fresh and well prepared. Many thanks, Angie for your excellent care!

This restaurant has great seafood, shellfish and take the time to have the local crab Jimmies! This is on my list for birthday dinners - that is how much we like the food. The food is fresh, tasty and you walk away happy.

I really enjoyed sitting outdoors next to the ocean. The she crab soup was good as well. I didn't enjoy waiting sooo long for the wait staff after sitting at the table. I hope to give them one more try
