A great place for chowder and grilled salmon. The place is quick and would definitely eat here again. The bread bowl and chowder was amazing!

We each ordered something different: Curry soup and salad, calamari and fries. Surf and fries. Very fresh food. Friendly servers with good service. We are definitely going to return.
