Good lunch not great, service average, feels like your eating in a basement. Lacks natural light. Waitress was very chatty to an extent of disrupting our lunch but we were on vacation so it did not bother us.

A seafood restaurant, the lobster chowder was superb. The haddock sandwich was very good. Cute seaside decor with dockside seating.
