We come here once or twice every year while on vacation. The seafood choices are very good. Hard to go wrong with their flounder Ina bag stuffed with crabmeat. All entrees are very reasonably priced. There are a few meat options but the menu focus is seafood. You are at the beach after all! The best part of the experience... More

This place is the absolute best. Such a cool and cozy layout inside an old beach cottage. Go in the winter and sit by the fire if you can! The seafood is so fresh year 'round. Truly some of the best dining anywhere.

I had been to this restaurant a year or two ago with some coworkers and enjoyed it. This time it was disappointing. I ordered the fish, shrimp and crab cooked in a bag. It was not very flavorful. I did not see or taste any crab and only a few small shrimp. Definitely, would not get it again. The bowl... More

Everything was good but the she crab soup and goat cheese appetizer were exceptional. Definitely recommend checking them out. Didnt realize until it was too late that there was parking in the rear. Traffic is a pain and made getting there a challenge but it was worth the effort.

You want to go here for dinner here for lunch here for you want to go here for dinner here for lunch here for seafood. Everything on the menu is delicious. We attended a large dinner party and everyone's meal was wonderful. Remember there's parking behind the restaurant. That is a bonus for the beach in the summer.
