We stopped here for a quick sandwich. Food was below average. One server was handling the entire room.

The crab bisque was delicious...we just got back from Maine and it was better than any seafood dish I had in Maine. Very tasty fish sandwich and fries for $5.99. My husband reported the hamburger was very good also.
