Although it is a very popular dining spot the food is just mediocre.A lot of locals along with tourists. Can be very crowded & noisy at dinner, best to go for lunch on the waterfront patio.

We were out for a ride and ran into this place just in time to appease the tummy God. Good location, very good service! We had Raw Oysters and chowder for lunch. It was OUTSTANDING. We will be going back.

We had the clam chowder and seafood stew. Both were excellent. Service was friendly and quick. Nice location sitting outside by the water.

Try this seafood restaurant for great service, food and drinks. The shrimp dinner is a bath in at under $15 for about 20 good size swimmers with the fixings. Fresh and tasty. The onion rings is a huge order and battered just right.

Combined restaurant, lounge, and seafood shop is a favorite among locals and tourists alike. Can get very crowded on weekends and parking is sometimes a mess.

Over time, we have evolved to include a restaurant, catering, and a distribution company which services restaurants and markets world wide. Times change, but our mission has remained the same. We are committed to providing guests with the best possible products we can source, prepared with care and served with pride. After all, this isn't just a job for us, its a way of life. Now eat, drink, enjoy!
