Walking past it looked good for dinner. No problem seated outside watching the passing crowd. Service and food was excellent, lots of choice and reasonable prices. It was the best meal we had in the few days in town.

Hands down the best clam chowder I have had. Halibut special was delicious too. Fish and chips were great also.

Great outdoor space but the rain forced us inside. Friendly hostess and server. I had the Portobello Mushroom sandwich and my husband the hot lobster roll. Very tasty choices. Hope to be on patio next time.
