We were here for lunch and it was delicious. The staff was attentive, knowledgeable about their menu. Everything was fresh, and the view was great!

We had dinner here on Friday night. The Thai calamari is excellent. My husband loved the swordfish and the fried clams with fries was very good. Good margaritas and beer selection. Nice view.

Enjoyed a seafood lunch. Noisy crowd so be prepared for this. Had clam strips, mussels, a cider... Good place just out of town if you are hungry for lunch.

I hear about this from other visitors so I went. Neat outside looking at beach. Great fun with the Rhode Island clam chowder, huge shrimp appetizer and wedge salad. The waitress was great and the mudslides were to die for!!
