Great clams, elk burger is delicious and prepared any way you like it. The crab mac & cheese is really unusual and delicious. easy location to find, don't be scared away by the sleazy bar atmosphere next-door, it's completely separate. I think it will soon be a locals favorite spot for lunch.

I don't know but this was the worse food and service I've had in years. The sauces were good but it could not cover up the flavor or presentation of the food. Some of our order was forgotten and some served out of sequence. Good luck with this place if you go.

excellent value!! no skimping on ingredients - especially seafood. and the reuben sandwiches are heavenly!!! it's on the main drag, & next to a bar...don't let this deter you from going in to a neat little restaurant. the homemade chips are wonderful & absolutely non-greasy.

Tried this place out, sauces were very good.chicken wings very small portion wise, crispy shrimp not worth it. The coleslaw on the chicken sandwich over powers the sandwich flavor, fish and chips very good. Horrible greasy homemade chips, go for the fries. Exceptional blue cheese dressing. Big downfall if you want a drink with dinner you have to eat in the dingy bar next door. Good burger place but wouldn't buy no atmosphere for their higher priced items.

Maybe it's just Mondays when the chef is out and the new cook learning, but two times our tables for 6 were served as much as 30 (40?) minutes apart from each other -- with no other people in the restaurant waiting for their food. Unbelievable.

The cioppino was fabulous, as are the clam bowls (in classic, thai and cioppino preparations); my friends said their reubens were delicious. My friends with the reubens were finished and heading back to class before the last person at our table of 6 was served!

One evening, at 5:40, a friend and I went to the restaurant to enjoy the clams. The front door was open. No one was inside. No patrons, no server, nobody in the kitchen! We waited a few minutes, called out to alert anyone we were there, but alas no one showed up so we left. What a shame!
