Went there once with the family, burgers were very good, the lobsters were great, service is good, even if it’s crowded.

Ate supper there tonight. Husband said the oysters are the best ever- very fresh. He enjoyed the Portugese fish meal, son loved the blackened swordfish, and this land lover enjoyed the baked stuffed chicken. Great service too!

Food is consistently good and they keep up their service standards year after year. Get there EARLY! Promised wait times are often exceeded at peak hours. Not inexpensive by any means but portions are more than sufficient for value.More

Hello All, Both our dining rooms are wrapped in glass overlooking the harbor. We do have a deck off the second floor but it's just a place to enjoy the view and a cocktail while we prepare your table.

No parking on Commercial street, but there is a public lot not far away. If you have handicapped/elders, you could drop them off and then go up the hill to park.
