They get it. Brought water out for our dog as soon as we arrived. Good solid service. Prices are tolerable, offset by their spectacular view. Food is the same as any other place on Dock Street.

It was little cooler than we'd hoped but we enjoyed eating outside. Our Server was pleasant AND courteous. The food was fine. The fried pickles however were Amazing! It was the view and being right on the ocean that made the whole eating experience great!

Food was delicious and fresh. We opened with a very unique appetizer, french fries with clam chowder on top. It was delicious! It's right on the water, you can sit outside. Service was excellent
