Food was very good, server Matt was great, very knowledgeable, consistent and very friendly. Food was as we had ordered, drinks were great. Dining room is very tight, but typical for a PTown restaurant.

Very unpretentious food heaven on Commercial Street Both levels have a view of the water, windows everywhere and in season you better show up early. The menu is 3 pages of seafood....and all are fresh. I will go back here in a heart beat.
