Burgers and hot dogs are great! We love the onion rings, too! My only complaint is that they aren't open on Sunday's, the day the Lord said to rest!

This is a little family run business, the serve a variety of food. Everything from hot dog and hamburgs to fried clams, shrimp, soft shell crab and more. One thing bring cash, they don't take credit or debit.

Checked online and the fish platter was $14.50. Got there and was billed $16.00. Not right! Just always seems to be a negative attitude on the part of staff.
