Greeted warmly by friendly staff. The premises were clean and the wait staff efficient and friendly too. I chose lobster roll which had ample filling and came with string fries. My partner chose a seafood medley - both meals were okay for the price.

Fantastic location right on the water, food was outstanding and our waitress Kiria was just amazing. We were just going to stop in for some chowder and beers but Kiria was so great we ended up staying for dinner. Thank you.

Cole our waiter and Luis the manager were particularly accommodating. Not only was the food outstanding but the service fantastic. Best dinner view on the island. Lobster special was the price from 10 years ago. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

I think they take reservations if you call- it might be party of 6 or more. It usually not a long wait.
