We ate here once before, about 5 years ago and had to try it again when we finally returned the area. Still a cool place with so much to take in visually with the different decorations, jus like we remembered it. The food was still excellent as well. We were there for lunch this time and both got the burger... More

First time at restaurant in November 2016 with group of friends. Service very accommodating and staff took time to arrange us together without reservation or advanced notice. Best clam chowder I've ever had not just here on the beach, simply the best. Affordable and will definitely be an off season regular.

Food was good to very good, ambience was rustic. Unfortunately had group of loud diners near us. Server was attentive but seemed disinterested which was unfortunate considering it was off season. Would go back but others in area which are more appealing.

We would not have stopped here if it were not for TripAdvisor. What a delightful find! Service was pleasant and food was delicious. I had the blackened catfish sandwich and my friend had the shrimp and grits, both were great! I would totally recommend. Great local establishment.

Arrived at 3:30 and were informed that they were in between lunch and dinner service. The young lady that greeted me was quite pleasant and told us they still had a limited menu. We were seated in a lower level and had it all to ourselves. We ordered the chicken salad and little kneck steamed clams. Yum. It was all... More

Three of us ordered Ceasar Salad and it came with house made Balsmic dressing instead of Ceasar dressing, not very good. Didnt taste at all lije a Ceasar salad, blackened catfish on top was very good! Another petson in our party ordered shrimp... More
