A real gem traveling north to avoid Interstate 95 nightmare. Fabulous meal at a high top near the front door. Will take this route north again just to enjoy some of their special dishes.

My husband and I had the lump crab and tuna sashimi seaweed appetizer, the assorted greens salad and the giant shrimp and lump crab over a crispy leak and potato cake. An amazing dinner, we finished every bite and enjoyed the friendly and attentive service.
