Waitress - friendly. Food - excellent. Water - not so good (or a soft drink instead). Wait - Thursday night over an hour wait so we decided to go someplace else, sadly.

I wasn't hungry but went for the scenery. Being right on the ocean, the views were awesome. The service was very friendly and answered a lot of my tourist questions. The food was okay. I had a lobster roll, which isn't my favorite meal, it...More

Sadly we don't grill outside at this location as there isn't space. Our wharf is beautiful spot for a Shipwrecked Margarita though even without a grill. Hope to see you soon!

Seasonal, hard to staff year round, most staff return to school or teaching jobs, lose too much money on snow days in winter. Other places use 'foreign labor' and their work permits only last so long.

Not many vegan choices except a delicious house salad (minus the feta cheese), but packed with berries, oranges and pecans. We also have tasty sweet potato fries, steamed corn on the cob, & onion rings. Hope that helps!
