“Local Beach Bar Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

Saw on Diners, Drive- Ins and Dives. Very cool place with 60's music, license plates and neon
on the walls. The staff was extremely friendly and coming early, we sat right down. The food was well, priced, came out hot and was delicious. The helpings were more than adequate without being too large a portion. The only large portion were the "Whale Fries". These are house made daily potatoe chips and served hot with dipping sauce. Will definately make a return visit!!!!!

“Lots of Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

More than we could eat! We had the combo which included lobster, muscles, clams, oysters, and scallops. Yum! For those who are offended by the atmosphere you are in the wrong place to begin with. This place was featured on Diners, Drive Ins and Dives!

“Fresh Seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

A must eat when in the area. Always love their Dolphin sandwiches. Oysters are always fresh and not too expensive. If you can go before the crowds are coming...parking is tough. Shawn Darling has been serving there for years and he is one of the best waiters if have encountered. Trust his recommendations and check out a cartoon of him at one of his tables.

“Better than it was 15 years ago”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

A lot bigger than it used to be, and a lot more kid friendly. Food even tastes better (when do you read that?). During the tourist season, be prepared to wait for a table and wait for your meal to come.
