Went there for the first time and we will be going back. They had fresh Blue Fish and it was excellent. My wife had the sea bass with "real" mashed potatoes. Great service as well. Best of all, it is byob.

Mom and I have a lunch date here at least twice a month. Order the bisque! One of many awesome eateries in a beautiful town worth the visit every time.
