Come early (before noon) or late (after 2) to avoid the lunch rush. Even if you have to wait in line, this place is worth it. Sustainable practices, fresh seafood, creative menu, all prepared and served by a delightful staff. Seating is sparse, but if...More

This place is more of a fast-food take-out joint. I would recommend only for lunch and really only on a sunny day!
