This is one of those places that takes recipes and uses them because they look good on paper- not because they were tested or taste well in practical application. If you combine that with a tourist type location at Princeton by the Sea, you get...More

Outstanding food in a rustic atmosphere make this a good choice for a couple. Prices are very high without a fancy building.

We had 3/3 lunches during our stay here, because i LOVED the outside seating with fireplaces in tables! Food was good. Service more flabbergasted than good, but we had enough time to not mind the delays. Ahi tuna salad rocks!

new owners since January 2012 and I think they are doing a very good job. Most meals are under $20 and starters are very good especially the deep fried (tempura) artichoke hearts. Better than Ketch Joann!! I will definitely go back. Mike

Thank you so much for your praise of our restaurant. We look forward to serving you again, in the future. May we suggest the Artichoke Asador next time. Artichoke halves marinated in olive oil, garlic and spices, charbroiled and served with a lemon-dill aioli.
