We had a table on the outdoor porch overlooking the bay. What a beautiful view! Our wait staff was great and we had a wonderful meal. I would go back again. Wonderful and relaxing lunch spot.

Nice menu that would appeal to all. Many seafood options, and also regular American food. The staff is top notch and helpful as the server suggested a few lobster dishes and described them well.

Yes, the new england clam chowder is fantastic. Had the bowl. Well worth it. Also had a sandwich, but it was just average. So my take is this – if you want some great clam chowder, this is the place. Nice ambiance in the room...More
