Sat at the bar, cause it was packed. Had a great personal pizza. My wife had the arugula and beet salad and also the mussels. Everything was just fantastic! Wait staff was friendly and helpful. What a great place!

We stopped here for lunch of chicken club sandwiches and local beer. The staff is very friendly and the place has a nice local feel to it. It's conveniently located next to the waterfront.

I have been here multiple times, I’m from the area but have lived away for some time. Every time I go here either with friends, family, etc, it is amazing. Usually a wait during summer, busy fall weekends, but absolutely worth it. Quite a large...More
