The atmosphere, food, drinks and staff are wonderful. A bit pricey and longer (45 to 60 minutes) wait on weekends but well work it!

Great crab cake sandwich. Very very little filler grilled to perfection. Priced right for the meal we got.

Great seafood! Tried both the garlic and fried shrimp. Both were delicious. Also had Mike's meatloaf which was pretty good. The only thing we weren't crazy about was the tomato and feta salad. The tomatoes just weren't ripe.

The crab soup was excellent so were the muscles, but all of the fried food we ordered including the calamari was a big disappointment. It was not fried enough, a little soggy, and sort of cold.

One of our favorite restaurants in town. Skip the menu and just order off the daily specials listed on the blackboard - you can't miss!!! Friendly service and fantastic food. Who could ask for more?!?
