We visited for dinner on a wet & cold night. Warm atmosphere. Great food. Seafood chowder worth the visit alone but very generous portions, excellent service and we'll definitely be coming back!

Excellent setting. Wonderful service. Food was better than average. My only complaint was receiving only 3 scallops in my $17 entree. They looked and tasted fabulous but I would have expected at least 6 for an entree. Especially when 6 oysters is $14. A bit...More
