This is a small family restaurant with good food. You can't go wrong with a visit here, food is good and so is the price.

Stopped by on a Saturday night. This is what you would expect from a diner in a beach town; menu is heavily geared toward fried seafood with a limited number of other options. Sides are limited. The food was good, but not outstanding. The wife...More
