This was not our first or even second choice for dinner, but the weather was terrible, several other restaurants were closed for the season and it was within easy walking distance from our lodging. There was nothing remotely fancy on the menu with most entrees...More

As it is the only restaurant open in this small town other than a take out this time of year, it was frequented by many. Yesterday we had one of the specials, fish and chips which were not greasy but a little dry. The fish...More
