I ate here with a few friends, and everyone enjoyed their meals. It's a nice, casual atmosphere with a magnificent view of the St. Martins sea caves.

In the midst of nowhere, suddenly tour buses descend and long lines form for the deservedly famous seafood chowder. No clams but all else you’d want, in a creamy potato base. Don’t forget the hand sized homemade biscuits and cookies for dessert. There are other...More
