This place rocks! It has the best lobster sandwich I have ever eaten. Big enough to share with another person. The location is great and the service was "spot on perfect". We hope to go back here in the future. Also, outside seating is available.

Came by for a beer or two, ended up getting a monster pretzel that took 6 people to eat. Nice atmosphere in the upstairs bar, downstairs bar was a little slow with service, but friendly.

This place is on and off. Sometimes great service and sometimes you never want to come back. We stop for drinks and the giant pretzel. The afternoons are wonderful and quite enjoyable.

It may be the same as the dinner menu. They have a huge selection, something for everyone. From chicken fingers to seafood.

Unfortunately, I can't answer your questions. I only went there for dinner. I will suggest giving them a call perhaps...!
