This place doesn't serve alcohol or take reservations. Definitely a local and family favorite. We waited in a fast moving line for about ten minutes. Service was fast and attentive. Good whitefish and a wide selection of pie.

We stopped after a long drive on our way to the island. The broccoli soup was some of the best we have had. The kids enjoyed their meals (mac and cheese, fried fish, grilled cheese)
