Had dinner here and enjoyed some of the starters and some chowder as well as a great bottle of wine. Shared a main dish; plenty of food with the appetizers. Was nice to sit outdoors.

We had great service, but I have to say that the place and food are pretty average - and you get to pay high prices. Still, it passes for small-beach-town nice. Not disappointing, just okay.More
