This is basically a roadside stop down by the marina to buy fresh crab, Clam Chowder and a few other items to go. There are a few tables out front, but my advice is to take your food down the road to the parking lot...More

Unfortunately there is no indoor seating. This did not help the upper respiratory infection I was developing. In addition, after a long drive we discovered there are no restroom facilities at this place. The food was good but the whole experience was miserable due to...More

There is no liquor license. It is a fast casual place with outside picnic tables and only serve non-alcoholic beverages. Food is great so don't let the fact they don't serve alcohol stop you!
