I have eaten here during the tourist season and off season. It is always busy. The food is outstanding...I have had most of the appetizers, the bouillabaisse, the crab cakes, and recently the braised shatake mushroom plate...all outstanding. The beer selection is very diverse, the wines are outstanding. The bar tenders will let you sample and know what they have available. The crowd off season starts when the sun goes down. In the summer after 5:30 PM. You won't go wrong here with kids, large gatherings, or any of the food choices.
