A pleasant dining experience, staff was more than competent and very pleasant. Chef has a creative menu most of which is very nice. We had breakfast there the next morning which was excellent.

Strawberry/Fig salad with lavendar dressing is a must. Crab cakes were fabulous. Reservation was not needed. BYOB. Reasonably priced. Decor was simple and clean. Enjoyed ice scream at next door place. Check out bathing suit store open late.
