Our group of four were impressed with the cordial welcome and the owner's attention to our tastes. He was most generous with samples of appetizers and even a sample of one of the entrees we were interested in. Al is most anxious to please his guests and leaves no stone unturned to do so. Everyone of us finished our entire... More

Food is excellent, Service is even better. This place is not one of the cookie cutter jernts so common in EVERY CITY. How DARE they not try to copy everyone else. Even a Larry Bird jersey hanging from the ceiling. It's a down-home place. If your a snobby snob snob, you might not like it, but if you like good... More

This is a quirky little place on a back street. Once you find it and have a meal, you will be back. Not a huge selection but what they have is great.

We've visited twice in 2 weeks! Al welcomed us with free appetizers, friendly conversation, personalized music. Customized the entrees to accommodate our finicky preferences. Complimentary after-dinner drinks and dessert. Couldn't ask for better treatment or food!

As someone said it is not a place to go for privacy. With a nice patio, it could be, but chances are that the owner will sit at your table to chat with you. So, I wouldn't go for a romantic dinner. On the other hand it is a different experience. The shrimp margarita for example. I don't like shrimp... More

Took my family for a special evening before they returned home after a weeks visit. All were very impressed with the congeniality of the owner and waitress, as well as the delicious food. This is our go to place in the Cape!

Took 4 out of town guests for a "good" seafood meal before they left. Was seated and waited on by a customer as she felt bad for the new girl. That was fine,she took our drink order, started our food order,but the owner stepped in and took it. It started out to be a fun time, but it was so... More

A few lines to introduce myself. My name is Al Whelan, I am from Boston and worked at a famous "waterfront dive" known as Kelly's Landing. A seafood business in a Catholic community with lines down the street, literally. I worked there for five summers and enjoyed every minute of it. My first date with the counter girl (she couldn't resist a man in a paper hat), my first kiss, etc. One rule was demanded, cooking with clean oil! In those days it was lard! Today we use canola oil both on the grill side and on the fry side... Most of our dinners are on the grill side. Fish shrimp, scallops, steaks, ribs, chicken and pork round off our menu. Our Irish Connoli is like a little piece of heaven and our homemade bread pudding is to die for. Both topped off with sweet whipped cream. We've added a 6000 square foot patio surrounded by trees. A truly private and romantic spot. Also some added features such as, a basketball cage, beer pong table and corn hole court.
