We make this restaurant one of our yearly summer special dinners. Great variety and specials and delicious desserts. Chowder is one of the best around. Sit outside on a nice summer night and enjoy the view of the ocean and the colors of the setting sun on the other side of the Cape.

This is a most special experience especially with visiting friends. The food is always superb ( try the mussels in broth for sure) and if weather is your friend try to eat on one of the outside decks and watch the sunset. Local college kids often work here as waitstaff and they're always friendly and full of information.

Food and location excellent. We both ordered the same fish "special" which was fresh, well cooked and tasty. Really good bread. Service very slow. Disappointing that a restaurant serving food of this quality hasn't invested in an espresso machine. Poor coffee, served in mugs! We are aware that staff need to eat, but is it really necessary for them to do so at a table in the middle of the dining room?

We just called in without a reservation and whilst the restaurant was fairly full, we got a table. The wine list offered a delicious Italian Pinot Grigio, and we both ordered the special scallops on sweet potato mash. They were superb!!! We went to return the next night, but alas they were closed (Monday night) until the Thursday lunchtime .

This is one of those little restaurants that is absolutely fabulous! We had dinner with two other couples and the atmosphere, view, service, food and wait staff were wonderful. I highly recomment that you try this restaurant. Some may find it a bit pricey but it is, in my opinion, well worth every cent.
