Happy hour of excellent food and beverage choices. 99 cent Rockefellers that are very good. It's for the bar area only which was fine for me. Great building, views, and location. Bottle beer only but good choices.

The price for the two lobsters has gone up to $26.99 from the previous price of $25.00. Still a great deal though for two chicken lobsters... More

Beautiful setting! Can sit outside in warmer weather. Food and service is good, slightly pricey. It is a local favorite for us.

We sat outside on the deck facing the inlet and the views are unbeatable! The food was good too, but on the pricey side.

Two one pound lobsters for $27, what can go wrong? Nothing! We hit a rush time so the kitchen was swamped with orders but the food was hot and fresh when it was served. My wife can no longer operate the crackers for the lobster so she had hers shelled so she had no trouble eating it. It took extra... More

Best "Oysters Rockafeller" I've ever had! Beautiful setting overlooking Rudee's Inlet and fantastic seafood. A few blocks off the oceanfront but well worth the drive and plenty of parking.
