Seafood Restaurant

“Excellent food - have yet to complain about any item on the menu (look up Yelp reviews). So fun to sit in the bar and grab an appetizer and watch the shrimp boats. OR dine in and listen to the local music - loads of people spontaneously get up and dance! Great to watch or participate. ”

“Awesome Happy Hour but you have to get there by 3pm. Once the bar is full, they don't accept anymore. Interesting food choices and $5 Martini's. Try the Lobster Mac & Cheese!”
