The fish and chips (fresh potato chips if you choose) were perfect. The deck is perfect for a beautiful afternoon to enjoy the boats and sidewalk cafe experience.

We ate here on a Saturday night and got in right away. Our server was great, very friendly and attentive! They had a Valentine's Day special that we took advantage of, so we each got an appetizer, entree, and dessert. We arrived at approximately 6:30pm and left after 8:30. Our entrees took about an hour to come out after ordering... More

We went for dinner and the food was excellent. The sand dabs were cooked well and were yummy. Husband had bouillebaise and there was so much seafood he could not finish it. Would definitely recommend this place!

Delicious food & drink. Lovely views. Prompt, and friendly service. I enjoyed the shrimp & scallops with scalloped potatoes. Ohhhhh, those potatoes. Hubby had the seared Ahi and loved it. We shared a cup of the clam chowder, and some crab cakes. Both were delicious. Creme brûlée for dessert. We devoured all of it. So good!

Good service. Great food. Spectacular view of the ocean. We are here twice. Loved the Cedar Plank Salmon and arugula salad. Loved the crusty warm bread. We even enjoyed the seagull watching us eat through the window.
