All of the meats are smoked on site, it smells so good in the shop. My husband had the DJ sandwich and I had The Italian. My sandwich was yummy but my husbands sandwich was amazing. I highly recommend stopping in for a bite.

This was a great spot for lunch and drinks, right on the beach and located right next to the ferry. Lots to pick from off their menu and drinks were great. Had a wonderful lunch but it was hard to keep track of our waiter.
