Hoping it was just an off night for the cook, but the serving staff did a great job. When my order was not what I had expected, they made a substitution. The atmosphere was pleasant and had a very beachy feel.

Not fancy by any means which makes it great. The meal was absolutely great. The fish, clam strips, shrimp, and fried pickles were outstanding. And the service was as equally good.

I got some sort of Seafood Platter with Clam Strips, Fish bites, Butterfly Shrimp, and Onion Rings, and Garlic Bread. The fish bites were soggy inside, having been obviously over-cooked. The garlic bread was 1/2 bread and 1/2 butter; again, soggy. Everything was overly breaded...More
