Went for dinner on a Tuesday night in October, not many other places to eat. I never saw a menu that had a market price for flounder...seems a bit over the top. We chose crab cake sandwiches instead of the dinners....crab cakes were excellent. Service was excellent but I thought the prices were crazy.

Down at the shore, time for seafood. Went for an early dinner before the crowd started to come out after a day at the beach. Stopped in and got a table quickly. Ordered drinks and the waitress took our dinner orders within a few minutes.
I had a broiled seafood combination which consists of a jumbo lump crab cake, filet of flounder, shrimp & scallops. She had Dungeness Crab Clusters that were steamed and served with butter. We shared the dinners and it was excellent, very fresh.
By the time we were done with dinner and decided on having an after dinner drink the place was full. Great place, get there early, We had lunch there the next day also, very good.

We were on the island for chowderfest. We have a hard time ever getting in here so we walked over for lunch. We had margaritas and we shared fried calamari. My dh has a soft shell crab and I had a crab cake. Food was excellent. The only surprise was the cost. It was over $80 before tip for lunch! And we didn’t even have full meals. We will be back but might need to skip cocktails or just go for dinner

Booked for a family group on a midweek evening in late September. The table was not ready for a while due to the previous party taking their time. The hostess was most apologetic and attentive while we waited. Once seated the waiter was outstanding with both attention and non-trite suggestions when asked. The place was crowded early so a little noisy but not uncomfortable. The chowder of course is great if you read the other reviews. Everyone seemed happy with their choices from fish specials to the standard fare, even the person who had chicken in a fish restaurant! On the pricey side but not unexpected in a beach town. Would definitely return.
