Stumbled upon this casual atmosphere eatery with great Food, service and ambience. Ordered crab soup which was delicious and served piping hot as I like it! Then ordered crispy calamari which was lightly breaded and fried to perfection. Bartender was attractive, friendly.

Great crab cake, fantastic service, very friendly staff. A great find! Not real fancy, not expensive. The local cops eat there so you know it's good!
