The decor is so interesting with the restaurant going all out for Halloween. Our dinner of seafood specialties revealed truly fresh ingredients.

That pretty much sums it up for me. The food is ok, but a bit overpriced. It's always pretty crowded which means a long wait for a table. If you have little ones in tow, this could present a problem. Most of the dining areas...More

The seafood we use is the freshest and locally caught. We offer mako, swordfish, flounder, and scallops when in season, from our local fishermen. We use only jumbo lump crabmeat. Saturday night our prime rib is certified black angus. All soups are made from scratch with fresh vegetables. Friday and Saturday we have live entertainment with special drinks at our front porch bar.
