Thought we'd try this place out. What a beautiful surprise. The casear salad was fresh, the dressing was subtle and delicious. The Clam Chowder had this wonderful smoky flavor. I had the crab cakes. These crabs were fresh caught Jonas crabs. The chowder was probably...More

We arrived for a late morning breakfast, on our way to our favorite Two Lights State Park. Service was meticulous and each plate delicious. We chose avocado toast, caesar salad, a smoked salmon bagel, and a corned beef bowl. We especially appreciated the chef's light...More
