Good service, view and a nice lunch. Looks like a pizza spot but has a varied menu of seafood from the area.

We stopped here for a mid afternoon dessert. We had the coconut cream pie and apple crisp with ice cream. Soooo good! Homemade desserts that are worth a stop in when you have room. Delicious!!!

7 of us stopped in for a late lunch. We ordered the fish and chips (haddock) family dinner and a couple of chowders. All were tasty. It was served with home made bread that was excellent! Finished it off with delicious Apple cobblers.
