Excellent food and service. Wide variety of selections. I had the charred octopus starter and a salad for dinner. Both were delicious and flavorful. Shared sweet potato fries with hubby, and they were not at all greasy. Several varieties of mussels offered. Highly recommended.

Fun, friendly atmosphere. The wait staff is always friendly and accommodating. Great selection of beers. My favorite: the mussels in white wine. Great brunch too.

Thought I'd try their restaurant week menu. The offering was rather slim. Better go there on a "regular" time. Had the lobster bisque which I didn't like at all. It was on the spicy side and didn't really agree with me. The trout was very...More

Best thing to do is call. They write them on a chalk board above the bar, you won't find them in a menu
