And, there is good reason! The restaurant is lively and upbeat. I love the crab stew which is rich with crab meat and perfectly seasoned. Another favorite of mine is the shrimp salad. Well worth the trip.

This is an excellent place to grab a bite. The clam stew is wonderful! The food was wonderful and portions were more than generous. I don't think anyone at our table was able to finish. Friendly staff!

We went for a leisurely Sunday lunch and it was perfect. Our server, Eddie was fabulous. He didn't rush us and gave awesome suggestions for beers to try, types I normally wouldn't have ordered, and he was spot on for all of them. They have a tremendous menu - it takes time to read it all. Ended up with the best crab bisque, shrimp salad was fantastic, burgers were huge and lots of daily specials to choose from. I would go back in a heartbeat. Note - they have parking in back.
