Excellent atmosphere and service. Can’t beat the view of the Harbour. Best lobster and crab I’ve ever had. Would highly recommend to family and friends. Well worth it.

I had some misgivings about the rave reviews this resturant got but i can attest the reviews are well deserved. We had a great dinner and got to watch a sunset to boot. Don't hesitate to eat here.
