Have had great experiences and food there but also had bad experiences including uncooked chicken. Outdoor area is fun and always a crowd there for lunch and dinners. Fish dishes good and bar good.

I ate outside. Pretty much had the place to myself. It was in between services. What a delicious burger and the server was very cool and accommodating. The hang-out for locals in this neck of the woods. You should try it.

I try to hit local restaurants when I travel. The name certainly caught our attention. Not fancy but I don't think they want to be. Some unique dishes. We were both please with the food and the service.
