Second visit this week! A true test if the food is consistent two times in one week! The wings are awesome, wedge salads great! ( could def be shared). Their stuffed clams were by far some of the best I've had in a long time....More

A few days before Father's Day we made a reservation for 10:30 am brunch for seven people. The restaurant normally opens 11 am for Sunday Brunch, but advertised 10 am for Father's Day. Brunch was advertised at $25 each- a bit steep for a beach...More
