This place has such a wide offering of food and it was AMAZING! No matter what we ordered, it was delicious. Scallops and shrimp were perfect. Burgers were off the hook delicious. Nachos were awesome appetizer. Staff was friendly and attentive.

I stopped by to have fried clams and beer for lunch. The clams were great on this visit. The kitchen prepared them with a very light batter coating. The batter had some internal air holes keeping it from becoming heavy and dense during frying. I...More
