We went there for dinner with some guests. We got the pre fixed meal and had the stuffed shrimp. It was very good. The salad was very fresh as well.

Kudos is the former Maggie’s and is still good. You can eat inside or out on the deck. The service is good and I enjoy their ample salads. Give it a try if you are at the shore.

we had breakfast there and I ordered banana nut toast which was just awful. It tasted like sawdust and was a $2 upcharge from the toast my breakfast came with. Very disappointing. Eating inside is dark and not terribly uplifting but outside can be very...More

We were sitting outside and ordered with three people food. Food was good, and price was okay, but the service wasn't the best.
