A nice restaurant right down by the waterfront. Good variety of beers on tap, and the menu was substantial. Salads were especially good.

Stopped in for a quick bite & was very pleased. We all enjoyed our selections... Burger, salad, pulled pork sandwich, soup, all delicious. Nice atmosphere. Bar and dining in desperate areas. Staff was friendly. Close to water, some parking out front.

if not readily available on street you can check the dock area. If none there, right on main st is the hillman parking garage, a 3 minute walk and most restaurants validate.
