Ate here a few times and never had a bad meal. It can get crowded so get there early or make a reservation. Great location near the beach with lots of parking.

Tasty, highly recommended lobster bites as a starter. The lobster lover's plate had lobster prepared 3 ways, tacos, chowder, and enchilada. Huge generous portion, unfortunately the lobster gets lost in the other ingredients. Friendly service and good food in this noisy but fun restaurant.
