“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013

We always try to stop here for the best soft shell crab sandwich and crab soup. The service is always quick and good hot food. Great tribute to firefighters with all the displayed patches from around the country. Great eating place in a small town atmosphere. Look forward to going back when traveling to this area again.

“Fun, great food, tribute to firefighters around the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

Stuffed flounder was so good it will make you want to cry. .. . fun, and the largest collection of firefighter patches from around the world. A hometown kind of restaurant. It's always on my agenda when I end up at NETC for a class.

“Casual for locals and quick but little atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

A place to grab a quick bite and run, not a place for relaxed dining with friends you wish to visit wiith. The waitress was overly casual, more of a "hey, come in and I'll be over in a minute" type of greeting. My crabcake sandwich was more fill than I had hoped for the price and it took a lot of time to get noticed for a drink refill. The table setting was sloppy although not dirty. The couple with us said that the food and the place was "okay" but not a real inspiration to return.

Great wings and cold beer make it! If you are a fireman you have got to go here and give them one of your patches - which will be proudly displayed. Great t-shirt to wear.
