Very good food and prompt service on a popular street. We went for lunch and the only others in were locals. They have an attached parking lot. Parking is otherwise tight.

Located on the nautical mile but not on the water side of the street this restaurant caters to families and older diners . The food is delicious and they have a pre-fix menu.
