Had lunch on a Saturday with the family. Arrived at 1pm and sat right away. The Bloody Mary was very good and the clam chowder was amazing. The chowder was very creamy with pieces of dill and lots of pieces of clam, one of the...More

This is the perfect idea of a chilled city hangout that does great seafood with a buzzing but relaxed atmosphere. We found this place on the off chance when looking for somewhere for dinner. Had a drink on the deck outside whilst waiting for our...More

This is a nice spot (on the water) for drinks (they have a deck or bar area) or lunch or dinner. They have a nice menu with reasonable prices, it's kid-friendly and laid back. The seafood is good and the service was as well.
