The seafood was outstanding!! We almost left this establishment because we didn't care for the attitudes of a few staff members. Glad we stayed. Our server was outstanding, and another staff member made up for the ugly first impression.

Outdoor dining at its best. The food was out of this world. The NE clam chowder and the clams in white sauce app were outstanding. The salmon was cooked to perfection.
The Maitre'd was name Tydis and he was excellent.

My husband and I visit AC often and I had read a review about the new restaurant in the AC weekly. It looked nice and we thought we would give it a try.

There is indoor and outdoor seating offered and we thought we would opt for indoor seating due to the storm brewing outside. It was 5:30 on a Monday night and we did not have a reservation......this is AC, you do not need a reservation for a casual restaurant you can wear flip flops to. We were told by the host that there would be a 15 minute wait and to sit at the bar.

I decided to look around because it really is a nice looking establishment. I found a surprise....half the tables were empty and there were tables not cleaned after people had enjoyed their meal. My husband went to inquire about sitting at an empty table and the response was " restaurant policy is not to sit 2 people at a 4 top and you will have to wait".
My thought was maybe the empty 2 top tables need to be cleaned. We decided to leave without a meal. Another customer just left the restaurant and heard our conversation. His response was "I cannot believe they would rather you leave instead of letting you sit at a clean larger table, it is a Monday...not a Saturday night"

Just a note..this is AC and there are plenty of restaurants in town....we enjoyed a lovely meal at another restaurant. This restaurant needs to get the kinks out.....and review their policy accordingly.

Once you go, you'll know! This restaurant only just opened in June. The food is fresh and served with a smile. the menu is well priced as are the drinks. for example- I had Tuna Tartare- served in a martini glass on a bed of shredded cucumber the tuna was marinated in a sesame based sauce and topped with slivered fried wontons, $8.00, My husband was served a Crabcake sandwich, mostly lumpcrabmeat with just the right amount of seasoning. Fries and slaw accompanied this dish for 12.00. We chose the outdoor venue sitting at the bar and thoroughly enjoyed it. The raw bar menu was priced at 1.75 for several different oysters from around the eastern seaboard with several non oyster choices as well.
The menu also offers various meats for the non seafood eater.
