We were traveling with 3 generations and everyone was very satisfied! Some comments- "Best snow crab I have ever eaten!" And best chicken foccaccia ever! Good value with the best and nicest service!

My wife and I had the lobster dinner. The lobster was overcooked and dry. The seafood chowder and sweet potato fries were good. Black Angus IPA was excellent. Overall, everything was overpriced, and the service was spotty. We would not come back.

Enjoyed the crab dip very much but the haddock and mash, and the chicken alfredo were very ordinary.
