This is a must go local Restaurant. The food is above average bar food. The service is excellent. Great family venue and the First Friday of each month local brewery feature beer flight is a really cool and fun time. You should go .

Great lunch with a group. First visit for me and will not be the last. Good range of choices on the menu if local seafood is not your choice. But I chose the seafood!

We stopped here for a late lunch and enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant building. It was once a general store and a post office. The food and service were fine.
