Fresh local fish daily, backed up by a Culinary School graduate. Best shrimp cocktails, live lobster, great seafood soups, and not at all least - fried chicken like you always wanted but rarely get!

I've eaten here before, love the food, moderately priced, all super fresh. You might read some reviews of waiting a long time for food to be prepared, not the case in the off season. Super friendly staff, excellent food, a must for seafood lover.

Very fresh daily fish. Today's catch sold or dinners cooked for eat-in or take out. Probably the best fried chicken anywhere! Some love to eat there.....and bring your bottle of wine.
