Not many places are open in early March, but this was recommended to us. The quesidelia special was philly cheese steak which was terrific along with the oyster soup. Great service also. Enjoyed talking with Red who was very helpful and personable.

Went out with some friends for drinks and food at a locals place. The drinks and food was good. The service was just ok. I guess because it's the off season, wait staff just aren't on their A game.
