Are you kidding me? 3 of us walked in at 835 pm Thurs and we're told the kitchen was closed. What kind of restaurant closes at 830 in a resort town?

Nice, neat little place. Food was just ok but a lot of variety. Staff was very pleasant and nice. It was pretty busy and looked like a lot of locals like it quite a lot

Cute restaurant with lots of character. We sat in the bar area and had chicken fingers and a hamburger. Both were delicious. The manager came over and gave us a bit of history about the building.

Large part for dinner 15, one waitress but she did a good job. Food was just average. Disappointed that I spent $27 on the large combo of crab cake, shrimp, and sirloin. Steak was cooked perfectly but was flavorless. The shrimp had a pineapple chutney...More
