If you're after seafood (especially lobster) this is your place. No reservations allowed so you may need to wait a while but it's worth it. The lobster tacos are pretty tasty too.

I was with a large group & all seemed very pleased with the food. I am not a seafood enthusiast so I ordered the London Broil & it was fabulous!! Cooked to perfection with wonderful mashed potatoes & asparagus on the side

No parking on Commercial street, but there is a public lot not far away. If you have handicapped/elders, you could drop them off and then go up the hill to park.
