This restaurant is great! The service, the food and the surroundings. Food was delicious especially the clam chowder, the “uncaked”crab cake and the salmon sliders. Yummy!

Great food and nice location. Stuffed Salmon was tasty and fresh. Clam chowder was delicious. Will definitely be coming back. Waiter was witty and made the evening even more pleasant.

Excellent food and portions. The chowder is so yummy. We got the sampler and tried all 4. It was enough to feed 2 of us plus some. The fish was cooked perfect. Staff was so nice and accommodating
