Skipjack's had a great lobster roll but, unfortunately, they shut down and are long gone. I haven't found one as good anywhere else to date.

I went to a conference with some people and we ended up here a few times. The food is good and the atmosphere is good, especially with friends. If you're in the area and want some seafood, this is a good bet.
