Lunch time visit. Always looking for low carb options. Had the appetizer of crab stuffed deviled eggs topped with caviar and Parmesan crisps. What a treat perfect for a lunch sized meal. I also had a side green salad, very fresh and yummy.

Wonderful restaurant with very friendly service. They make excellent bloody Mary's for brunch Although their crabcakes taste good, they need to present them better - should be golden brown and use a lighter bun, like a potato roll, for the sandwich.

We had fish chowder with soft crab sandwich. The soup was good and tasted like a home made soup, that is good and bad. The crab sandwich was excellent.
