Every year or two I accidentally go back to this place.

This year it was for a greasy breakfast that was barely edible.

At 10 am there were a number of people sitting at the bar by themselves getting drunk.

The outside of the building features rotting boards and generally looks like the owners have given up.

I will NEVER go to this place again.

Comfort food, served comfortably. Don't expect high cuisine, but anticipate a nice rib-eye, cooked nicely. Extremely friendly staff provides good service with good spirit and will not let you remain just another anonymous customer. You can vary the way you would like to have your local shellfish cooked, either saute'd or fried, depending on what mood you are in that day. Furnishings are pretty basic, almost Spartan, so it is clear they are keeping the money invested in the locally sourced seafare rather than buying and displaying a bunch of eclectic collectibles that don't improve the taste of your meal.

Made the mistake of asking for stronger coffee, and we got punished by getting awfully strong, and thus undrinkable coffee, The burger that I had was ok. Try the McDonalds across the street, their coffee is great.

The waitstaff here is so welcoming and friendly! There's a special dinner offer every night of the week, and I'm especially partial to Monday: Burger Basket with Fries; Friday: All-You-Can-Eat Fish and Chips; and Sunday: 4-Piece Fried Chicken Dinner. Also great is Happy Hour every day from 3-6 with discount drinks and half-priced appetizers. The super friendly and enthusiastic Marcie KJ's karaoke from 9-12, or so, Wed-Sat, but they only get a good sized crowd on Fri/Sat.

our friend from our hotel recommended this local place for a weekend evening hang out. We had a blast! Drinks were good, food was good, and karaoke was so much fun! The host Marcy did a great job! it was a really nice local hangout and very welcoming to the visitors from out of town. we're definitely going to make this must on our next visit to the coast. Really enjoyed the staff and how we were treated there.
