If you hate touristy places and don't care where your place is, just like good food, come here. Its always great food, and easy to get to. If you are in the area you gotta hit this place. Just go. Do it.

A roadside seafood shack, serving extremely generous portions of fried seafood. The lobster rolls were great. Clean, efficient, and yummy.
