Came here on recommendation of the Motorcyclepedia Museum. Friendly staff, good service and most of all well prepared, fresh seafood. Lovely weather and we sat at the patio overlooking the boat docks.

Delicious seafood. Great atmosphere. Perfect for families. Rain or shine your under an awning. Tried their calamari, lobster bisque (has actual chunks of lobster in it) and lobster rolls. All prepared perfectly. Lobster rolls were not drenched in mayo.
