Fun, funky and delicious! It was a favorite for adults and teenagers alike. Crabcakes were delicious, the sampler was delicious, service was good and it was reasonably priced. Plenty of places to sit indoor and out.

What better place to go than a place with good food, live music, and BYOB? If you are visiting the area from out of town, you need to stop in just for the experience.
