This restaurant is specialized in seafood. In front of Marine and a big blue lake is perfect in any part of the day. I ate the chowder and salads, however there are many good options. Come here!

I didn't want a big dinner, so the reviews about their award winning soups piqued my interest. Wow!!!! The clam chowder here was everything! Perfectly done...not salty or watered down. Rich, creamy, each bite full of clams, potatoes, and just goodness!! 😋 😋 Dukes serves...More
