I ordered the number 2. The wheat toast was dry and stale There was some weird purple thing in my food. Hash Browns were soggy and not cooked. The waiter was rude asked to change a soccer gamer that was over to golf no acknowledgement.

You have to park in the Main Street (Marine Avenue) or in the nearby streets. It can be a bit challenging especially during weekend.
