Nice little local place. Great seafood menu but self-serve with paper plates, silverware. Very affordable. Would be good for families.

They don't take reservations. It's like a fast food restaurant except with Really good and fresh seafood! The seating they do offer is limited and on an outside porch so no A/C which is a important feature in the summer here. More
