Great food and atmosphere near the harbor and shopping in downtown. Service was very good. My wife and i shared the seafood platter and clam chowder. My daughters had grilled cheese and chicken both were accepted well by my children. I would recommend for families.

Stopped in for a late lunch and had some of the freshest clams on the 1/2 shell. They were so good we ended up just eating clams and nothing else. 3 dozen to be exact! Really good margaritas along with friendly service as well.
