Had dinner here New Years Eve. Kathy took extremely good care of us - fantastic personality and very helpful. The fresh flounder was outstanding, as was the shrimp. I'd have to say that it is the best flounder I have ever eaten. We will be back.

Was there the day of the Flotilla with four friends. Got there in plenty of time to relax and order, have cocktails and dinner because we were going to see the flotilla. Our food took forever to come. We had two orders of 12 steamed oysters, the oyster plate and some kind of quesadillas. The oyster plate was cold. We... More

Between us, we enjoyed a great Friday night dinner of braised clams, chowder, the best potato soup ever, a crab cake sandwich and an amazing spicy crab dip. Our bartender also served us amazing drinks! Service was a bit slow but what else are you gonna do on an October night? The atmosphere was great and the music was wonderful.... More

I was so excited to go back after our first visit. The service was mediocre at best and the food was not good. Certainly not for the money. I got an Alfredo dish that was the consistency and flavor of Elmer's glue. My husband has the tuna special and it had no flavor and was extremely over priced. The ranch... More

Went to dinner on a Saturday evening in August - no one was in the restaurant. That was surprising. Food tasted good but seemed a bit pricy.

Our party of 4 all ordered different menu items and everything was very good. The fries were amazing. The waitress, Kat, was friendly and entertaining. The iced tea was also delicious. I think it was sweetened with honey. All over, a very good dining experience and their prices were not bad either.

Food is pretty good here. Lighting is too bright. It needs some ambience. It has potential to be an upbeat great place. Check it out.
