Really fresh seafood all cooked to perfection. Portion sizes were a bit small for the cost. Some of the menu items were not available. Great service. They have both a indoor resturant and a large outside deck. nice view of the inlet.

Excellent dinner for restaurant week. Perfectly presented and cooked just right. Not frozen vegetables. Only downside was this restaurant is small and no reservations. Can only seat about 50. BYOB was nice touch. Has outdoor seating but different menu.More

Hidden treasure. This cute little restaurant is tucked away on the inlet in Point Pleasant and has a very delicious menu! Loved the lobster Mac&Cheese! Definitely worth visiting for very fresh seafood. The staff was extremely accommodating and super friendly.

Hi we do not have hamburgers but we have many chicken options. We do have fresh flounder and cod and many other options for fish.
Can you handle a party of 5 or is it table for 4 only?
