The view is very nice of the marina and water. The food was ok, nothing special and the service was ok.

The food was amazing here and the service was extremely fast. The fried clams were to die for along with the lobster sandwich that I had. The view was wonderful and it has a very nice ambiance. Recommend for sure!

Went here on a whim and was totally impressed. Started dinner with a cucumber martini, nice pour and delicious. I had the swordfish special -- it was served with a pineapple/mango chutney, rice, and arugula salad. My husband had the fish n' chips and said...More
