Make sure you make a reservation seating is very limited. Most of the foods used are locally grown and very good. The atmosphere is loud because of the size. The service is good despite the lack of space. There is a full service bar and...More

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner here on our recent trip to Cape Ann. This is a small place, so reservations are in order. We had the polenta with spinach and mushrooms, the Seafood stew and the hanger steak. It's great that the...More
