We arrived early afternoon for some fresh seafood... I enjoyed the double Lobsters, while my companion had Scallops... The food was well prepared, service was great, we will visit them again if we get in the area...

Stopped in for a quick bite and had a fantastic lobster roll, lots of meat and no fillers. I ate at the bar and I will be back.
