Went there for a quick lunch with my sister. Got the Greek salad with grilled shrimp and it was very good. Rustic atmosphere, very “beach-y”, not quite the same for a weekday lunch in December.

Went for lunch, two of us had tuna melts, one a fish sandwich. Tuna got raves, fish did not seem as good as last time. Beautiful spot, across the street from the bay. Kids would like the trains rushing by continually.

Service was fast with polite and helpful staff. Sat outside on a lovely 80 degree day overlooking Long Island Sound. Chowder was good but ordinary. Fish sandwich with lettuce and tomato was good. The ocean views are fantastic. Only downfall is the heavy traffic which...More
