Nice unpretentiousness place with awesome food. Great prices and super fresh delicious oysters. Wish we found it the first day we arrived. We almost didn't go in because it wasn't crowded. Best food on the island.

Very friendly staff and usually quiet and relaxing. It also has surprisingly really good clam chowder.

The food was good but it's very noisy in the dining area, one screaming kid would be enough to make me want to leave.

Food was average. I had the chicken tenders, Husband had the fish and chips which was made from Flounder instead of the usual Cod, so he found that to be a nice twist. Portions were generous, waitress was friendly and polite.

We enjoyed a wine/dinner special midweek in the Fall, and had a very good meal in December on a return visit. Good food and reasonable prices as well. The waitstaff was very accommodating. Will continue to stop here regularly.
