Great seafood, many non-fried items. Seasonal April through Columbus Day Weekend. Cab be busy, loud. Not necessarily a "romantic" choice for Dinner - too boistrous, unless you do to Dinner a little later.

Traveling on business, and dining solo, I was greeted and seated immediately. Friendly servers, nice table with water view. I got fried calamari, and a great salad! This was a very good experience and the prices are moderate!

Had dinner here with my wife, food was so-so and the service was mediocre. Save your money at this place and go across the street to Captain Parkers!!!
