Friendly service and fantastic Chowder. Truly world champion! This is coming from a New England Clam Chowdah gal! We also enjoyed their salads and seafood platter-- a combination of steamed and fried seafood. Perfect assortment and enough to share!

Never heard of that salad. Didn't look for it on the menu. You may want to go online and see if their menu is listed, or, give them a call. Sorry, wish I had more info.
