This place is out of business and has been replaced by "Flavor" if you're looking for seafood on the coastside try either Barbara's Fish Trap or Princeton Seafood both right near by the old location for this place.

Stopped several months ago for a quick lunch. The clam chowder was horrible and the wine was just as bad. Thankfully we only had to pay for the wine. More thankfully the restaurant is closed.

This restaurant is on its third time around and this is the worst version of them all. The food is overpriced, not very good, and the service is appalling. The only thing good about it is the location.
