Seafood, healthy salads and more on the menu. Windows on the street allow one to view the cook. It was crowded which is always s good sign. Waterfront location.

We had a couples weekend on the island and my husband and I stopped in here for cold beer and steamed mussels. Delicious! It was wonderful to sit overlooking the water. The atmosphere is absolutely wonderful and the service was prompt.
