Friendly staff, soda refills and big tasty crab cakes. That's the deal and that's what you get. Location and decor are not much to write home about, and there are no windows. On the other hand, that helps to keep the prices in check ;-).

The crab cakes are very good, but it is like 1960 in there. All the other items are average mid-level food. I'd go back likely just for the sandwich.I like the old school bread sticks though. it is not worth a special tripMore
