Good clam chowder and they have a huge burger on the menu also. BUt be preppared if you only order the chowder they try to preassure you into ordering something else also.

Don't waste your time here. The food is overpriced and poorly prepared. The service is awful and borderline rude. There are numerous other places in Noyo Harbor, anyone would be better and a nicer experience.
