We were there in Mid-September 2016 during the off season on a Monday night. There was no line and no wait. The food and service was excellent. We sat upstairs on the deck and had a nice view of the ocean. I would definitely go there again.

We visited at the end of September which is off season but this place was packed by 5:00. We got a seat upstairs on the enclosed deck. It was cold so they had the heat on. Our table was under the heater which was quite stifling. Thank goodness we had tees on under our clothes. Anyway the food was excellent!... More

The first thing the waitress did was ask us if anyone had any allergies to any of the foods. That is always a very nice way to start dinner. I ordered the clam strip dinner and I have never seen so many clams on my plate at one time the service was tremendous the owner even came out and talked... More
