This place is rustic and friendly. You can choose any seafood and have it made your way. They also have beer and wine. Sitting outside in the sun is wonderful.

This place is great. Great location. Local parking. Pick your fish and how you like it cooked with all your side options and pick it up at the window, cooked to perfection!! Best swordfish I have ever had. Along with all the others we tried.
