We LOVE this place. It's very RUSTIC but the peel & eat shrimp R to die for. The clam Chowder is also excellent!!! We drove 2 hours just to get the shrimp & chowder. Prices are really reasonable.

No oysters in summer - a good rule of thumb: Eat oysters only in months that have the letter "R" i.e. January, February, etc.

A lot of local controversy around restaraunt so it is becoming very popular.
