Dynamite resturaunt tucked on the inlet in this quiet shore spot. Delicious food with a bountiful complimentary salad bar. Fresh fish and great steaks. The prices are more than reasonable. Great family environment too. Early bird offerings made me think I was in Florida. Does...More

Seafood restaurant geared to serving a lot of people quickly. Good service, Food was average at best. The Lobster Bisque was good. The shrimp in the Broiled Seafood Trio were very overdone and hard while the scallops and flounder were short on taste.

Plan to arrive in time to enjoy some magnificent sunsets, visible from large, west-facing, waterside windows. Cocktails there are less than generous, but the salad bar is well stocked with a great selection of goodies of all sorts. The seafood entrees ordered by our party...More

Had a pretty uneventful meal here. The food (scallops for me, crab cakes for my friend) is average at best but I didn't mind because the view is so wonderful. It was a warm late afternoon so we sat outside and it felt like we...More

If there was any alcohol it would have been white wine. I don't think any of the seafood menu items included pork/chicken/meat broth.
