The place is small the food is outstanding. There may be a wait on weekends but it is worth it. Has become a little pricy.

Local, small, decent seafood. Nothing to write home about but some of the dishes were quite good. Very well priced and service couldn't be nicer.

This is a restaurant that we visit every year on our visit Brigantine and it never disappoints. They have great daily specials and also their standard menu,with the usual seafood fare. The great thing about this place is that you can BYOB.
