On the night we walked into this restaurant about 1/2 the tables had customers. There was a line waiting to be seated of approximately 5 parties ranging from 2-4 people. The "hostess" refused to take any names and refused to seat any of the people...More

This sweet little restaurant overlooks the harbor (from a distance), it's clean, friendly, inviting. We went for breakfast and I ordered the "2 eggs and two friends"- french toast and bacon. The eggs were fine but both french toast and bacon undercooked. French toast soggy...More
