Both meal and service was outstanding. Started at the bar prior to our seating and was promptly greeted. The seafood selections were fresh and well prepared, especially the specials. They do an outstanding job when you consider how busy they are. Get there early and you can beat the wait.

Good and popular neighborhood restaurant frequented by the locals. It is not large so a wait for dinner is usual. Servers are efficient and knowledgeable.

Each year for last many, we have gone to this place.  The food is fantastic and the people make the place rock.  If I were to ever own a restaurant it would be much like this concept.  What ever it takes to make a dining establishment successful is a mystery that few get.  These guys... get it. See you in Sept 2019!

A friendly place with pretty good service. Fills up quickly at night because they do not have much seating. Salads are huge and very good. Steamed clams are OK. The crab dip was excellent.
