One of our favorite restaurants anywhere. Not only is their clam chowder the best you will ever taste but their other menu items are great as well. Super friendly help and a real "old time" atmosphere.

Had a wonderful dinner here and the clam chowder was everything we'd read about and more. Just delicious. My husband and I shared the seafood platter for 2 and everything was beautifully cooked, tasty and nicely presented. Friendly service and would definately eat there again.

Unquestionably the best clam chowder I've ever had!! We had fried fish, fried shrimp and crab stuffed shrimp. The fish was a little "tough" but good flavor. The crab stuffed shrimp was excellent. Key lime pie was not too tart, not too sweet. Highly recommend...More

Never heard of that salad. Didn't look for it on the menu. You may want to go online and see if their menu is listed, or, give them a call. Sorry, wish I had more info.
