Stopped in looking for treasures and I was surrounded by hand picked items of nautical interest and eclectic treasures. This is a must stop and shop. The owners are very friendly and make a very engaging experience, will be back again for sure.

Great food. Good service! We bought the shrimp and it was delicious! The only thing is that the pub only had beer, and no other alcohol.

Interesting nautical items. Some items appeared to be replicas while others appeared to be antiques. Some items were overpriced and there were limited variety for se items.
