Lovely salmon dish over polenta and spinach. Best cobbler I have ever had. Go... it's good and the locals all hang here which is another good sign!

As locals, we eat here about once a month and always enjoy the experience. Great staff, setting, delicious food and amazing view of the ocean from the bar
