Traveling thru town and found this nice eatery. Had to try the roast beef sandwich and hot German potato salad. Both were OK. The location is fantastic if you have some good weather.

The strips were great, not too chewy, but with great flavor. They come with a ton of battered fries which were a bit greasy. All in all yummy strips. The Clam chowder was Meh, nothing special and you had to really search your taste buds...More
