Loyal customer for last several years, even June '17 it was excellent. September 6, '17............miniscule portions, 3 shrimp and 3 tiny oysters over-fried. Funny, the prices have stayed the same. Don't know why they changed what was one of our favorites.

We dined here the evening of the eclipse, and I'm sure the waitstaff was tired, but our server kept her smile. Unfortunately we were seated inside and had only a slight view of the inlet, though my husband thought he caught a dolphin. Had it...More
