Good food, good and reliable service. Fun to eat inside and outside. Our food has always been delicious. The oysters are always fresh, the soups are always good and the shrimp salad has always been tasty. We have always enjoyed both lunch and dinners.

We had the seabass and crabcakes...both excellent and presented very well. Also, the portions were very generous and reasonable in cost. We also enjoyed a beatiful evening at a table outside with the attached waterfront views :-)
