We asked a local shop owner for a recommendation, and wish we had gone somewhere else. The appetizers were very good, crab dip and oysters, but our meals were not. Saturday night, bar was busy but restaurant was not.

Had dinner there with the family. Food was good, and the service was ok. Someone in my group spilled water, and we didn't get any new cloth napkins.

Delicious crab cakes. Expensive but go for it! Ordered a gnocchi based soup with bacon and spices which was fantastic! Decent burger. Music was 60's and not too loud for once. We left very satisfied.
