What a comfortable place to dine. Soft shell crabs the best I have had. Plenty of other good choices available. Many return trips planned.

Thrilled to experience friendly, warm service and local fresh food, made to order. And, there was no problem accommodating gluten free requests. The homemade tartar sauce is incredible!

A surprising gem left over from a slower and gentler time. Everything made from scratch -- crab cakes, pies, cakes, fresh hamburger, seafood chowder, fresh steamed spiced shrimp and crabs. Homey and welcoming.

Arrived for lunch. No greeters. No wait staff. Many diners looking lost for lack of service. Assessed the situation. No personnel anywhere. Departed after 10 minutes at table. Wondering why other lost souls at adjacent tables did not follow suit.
