My huband and I each had a bowl of corn and crab chowder, and we split a salad, and it was plenty. An ideal place to enjoy a quick lunch that is healthy and reasonably priced.

Laurie, the owner/manager at this location is just a horrible person. I witnessed her being extremely rude and nasty to a former employee. Apparently, the girls daughter was sick and brought Laurie a doctor's note. Laurie snatched it out of her hand and said, "she...More
