Stopped for a quick lunch (1.5hrs) after walking the beach. The service was very slow as our server was more interested in the regulars I believe. The thing that really make it a poor experience was the dirty glasses along with just average food.

We had salad and calamari. The calamari seemed frozen and not fresh. The salad was great. Wish that I could say the same for the calamari. The lot was full because there was a Thursday Night steak special. The steak being served to others looked amazing.

We had the surf and turf and both the steak and the crab cake were excellent. My partner had the filet and it was mouth watering. The only down side is that the metal ceiling tiles did not absorb the sound of the customers so you could hear people talking all the way across the restaurant. No place to go... More

An 80 degree day in early November. The outside dining area was delightful. Our server was extremely competent, friendly, and knowledgeable. The soft crabs were the best we have had in many years. We will be back!!!.

A small but well appointed restaurant, busy on a Saturday night even out of season which tells it's own story. The Maitre D was friendly on greeting and after a very short wait we were seated. The atmosphere was pleasant. From a good selection of food and wine we chose Cream of Crab Soup and Shrimp with Broccoli Soup followed... More
