My husband and I loved this place. Family run, great food, great location. Food cooked to order takes time. I never went here for a quick meal. A great place to relax and have a great meal. I hope they decide to open up again

Holy Mackerel closed for the season in September of 2013 and never re-opened for the 2014 season. I'll miss the great meals.
