Enjoy a cocktail overlooking the ocean. You MUST get the buttered lobster roll! Wonder place, busy but once you taste the food you will know why!

Very busy on a Friday night, but they found me a seat with a view overlooking the water. Since the lobster roll was advertised as best on the island multiple years in a row, I went for it. It was good. Maybe even really good....More

No we do not take reservations. You can download the No Wait app and put your name in for a table . This app is not a reservation app it just helps you see how long of a wait it is .
