Would you like to eat in a converted home with tables where the sofas used to be? Would you like crab cakes that are almost all crab, with just enough filler to hold them together?If you would, this is the place for you.

I found the inside dining area brightly light and without charm. The outside is furnished with pvc patio chairs - so, lacking in charm as well. I had the crab cakes and they do have large chunks of backfin crab in them (which is good) but they also have a seasoned filler that I thought was unnecessary and that one... More

My sister and I accidently stumbled on this restaurant and so glad we did. We had the greatest culinary experience and the prices were just fab. Our fantastic server was Erica and she did a great job. This place was so quaint and extremely clean. Service great and food was fantastic. great wine selection as well.

Monday night special of prime rib is really good value and tastes great. The ravioli with crab topping had a very good crab taste. I'm so use to tasteless seafood I was happily surprised. Definitely worth the visit.

Monday night special is prime rib and it's very special indeed. Beautifully tender and tasty meat served by attentive staff in relaxed surroundings. What more could you ask for?

Best crabcake we have ever had! We love crabcakes and have had them from Maryland to Hawaii. This was outstanding!

The location is great, the place looks welcoming, it's a friendly hang. But your food needs some improvement. We've had several seafood entrees. Strangely enough, each fish item came slathered in some dressing which had barely any discernible taste. -- So get back into the kitchen, make sure that what you have ready to present, that your flavors are really...
