Bacon is NOT a standard ingredient in Clam Chowder and they never mention on the menu that it contains it - NOT COOL! Blue moon but no oranges. Outdoor seating but a bad septic smell. Potato skins were good but I wasn't impressed they went the extra distance to be memorable.

We had the seafood potato skins and they were delicious. The clam chowder was great too except that it had pieces of bacon in it, which I don't eat. I wish they would have disclosed that ahead of time. The waitress was very nice and we sat outside. It was a great place to get lunch after the beach.

I had the steamer platter...which the flounder was too much for me. The screen room eating is unique and was nice! The varied seating options in neat.

Our meal here was nothing to write home about. Service was good, but the food was just so so. Especially considering the prices. We ate for lunch - and the burger was the best thing ordered. Disappointing when you are near the beach and at a seafood restaurant.

I can't say how it was because sadly we left! We waited a half an hour for a table and then when finally sat, we never got any service! There are not a ton of places to eat on the island so when this place opened we were excited to try it. With hungry kids in tow, the additional wait and no acknowledgment from wait staff was unacceptable. Can't comment on the food since we never had the chance to try it.
