I love this place. Its location is great; on the water, with an awesome patio. The food is really tasty and not a bad value. The staff are all incredibly nice. Do yourself a favor and sit and relax by the water with a froze.

We needed a quick bite with some basic kid food and this was the place. You can order hot dogs, grilled cheese and fries for the kids but you can also order hot lobster rolls and clam chowder for the adults. The seating is outdoors...More

You wouldn’t think that such an unpretentious place would have such excellent food but this is just the case! Our group sat in the front where we could people watch while waiting for our order. They were super busy but we had our food in...More
