My husband and I came here for dinner. The clam chowder was very good, but the crab casserole and broiled scallops were just ok. Pretty pricy for average tasting food.

Had a great clam chowder, fried calamari, fish cake, fried Scallops. The lobster scampi wasn't so great. but... except for the scampi everything was among the best we had in the area.
