Always a nice place to pop in for lunch and a cold drink after a visit to the beach. Great food, friendly staff and historical surroundings. Well worth a visit.

Great place for lunch right in town. Service was good. Everything is served in throw-away plates, bowls, cups and plastic ware. Lobster bisque was mediocre. Fried shrimp was delicious. Good size portions! I would go back.
