On my drives up to the North Shore, stopping by here for the Garlic Shrimp plate is always a must. Yes it is very touristy, but the wait during off season isn't so bad! Nice place for a relaxed low key inexpensive lunch & portions...More
We drove all the way to North Shore just for the garlic shrimps. They definitely lived up to the hypes! The shrimps were meaty and the garlic was rich and flavorful. The butter scampis were okay. So we got went back for an extra order...More
