The Haddock was out of this world! The service was friendly and just formal enough. If you get a seat by the window, the view is lovely. I really enjoyed dinner here and would go back.

Great for a hearty soup for lunch. We recommend the lobster soup - add the terrific freshly baked bread and you have a great meal.
