We just shared a fish and chip. The fish was not fresh. Fish should not taste fishy. One piece was undercooked in the middle. The cooks and then waitress told me I was wrong that it was cooked. But they would make me a new...More

The Fire Chefs have recently bought the Old Captain Hardy's Restaurant and have completely renovated the interior. We wanted the interior of the restaurant to reflect our commitment of bring about great colorful fusion cuisine heavily borrowing on France and Japan's attention to the culinary arts.

Our two chefs bake fresh pastries daily. They buy their prized fish off the Haste (a local fisherman) and prepare a light yet crunchy fish batter. We produce fresh homemade soups and chowders, sushi, breads, muffins, cookies, pasta, Prime Rib Hamburgers, Caprese Salatas, Calamari with homemade tsaziki.

We are new and we offer refined gourmet food and affordable family pricing. Try us.. We believe you will enjoy your experience!
