We were quickly greeted and seated at a table by the back window which overlooked the water. View was wonderful, top of our table was sticky, service was good but food was not. We ordered crab cake sandwiches and they certainly looked appetizing when they...More

Enjoyed coming here and tasting a variety of small plates. Really liked the berry and beet salad with added crab cake - fresh and meaty. The avocado with poke was good, Peruvian tuna and corn pone skillet.

First visit to a great restaurant in the harbor. This is not a typical seafood restaurant. The food was creative in taste and presentation and made the seasonal ingredients shine. I had the mixed green salad. The portions were extremely generous and could easily be...More

We write our menu twice daily based on what's fresh and available. The majority of our ingredients are sourced locally so we never know what we're going to have on hand. The beauty of that is we always have a seasonally... More

real food * from scratch We believe that great food and healthful ingredients are not mutually exclusive of each other. We buy organic produce from local farmers and seafood from the commercial fishing harbor right outside our restaurant. We feature all natural products - steering clear of preservatives and antibiotics. Whole grains and whole foods are used in the preparation of our menu - which our chefs write twice daily, based on what's fresh, available and delicious. Fresh. Local. Organic. Taste the difference.
