Has a nice lunch. No room outside under an umbrella and too bright for the other tables. Good selection of local beers.

Being in the mood for some fried clams - strips for me and whole belly for my husband, we ventured to Kaler's. This is a family place with a touch tank in the back for the kids. Very casual but the clams were very good.
