Fresh seafood overlooking a scenic harbor is my idea of a perfect restaurant. I've eaten here many times and have not been disappointed. This time I had the fried scallops which were large and absolutely delicious!

Very good fresh lobster and lobster stew. Fries were cold and the crab cakes were not good at all. Would go back for the lobster only
