Found this restaurant by accident.... looking for a different restaurant......made the wrong turn, so glad I did, beautiful place, warm, fantastic food, great service, chef cooks with fire wood, wow, what a treat, very large dinning, but yet cozy, you can smell the wood burning

This has quickly become my wife and my favorite weekend spot. Food and service is nothing less than amazing. Do yourself a favor and try 18 Seaboard! Don't forget the Brisket Tacos and she crab soup appetizer. And their desserts....PERFECT! Enjoy!

Stopped in one day for a quick bite. Discovered they had a large selection of brews and a great Reuben Sandwich. It was cool and dark, a nice shady spot.
