Pulled into here after riding bikes for awhile, asked for a Hurricane, which in every other beach town they know how to make, but bartenders had to look it up. Guess its more of a food place.More

Enjoyed hand battered chicken strips, fried shrimp and lobster roll. Spinach salad and NE clam chowder. Everything was delicious. Fresh ingredients. Fun interior and friendly staff. Will go back for crab cakes for dinner as they are the bomb!
