If you are looking for a good crab cake with very little filler this is s good spot to try. I like their regular coffee here too although the decaffeinated is not that flavorful. Attentive waitress without being intrusive.

I was with a party of 6 to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I love the charm of the Inn, but it stopped there. We ordered fried oysters for an appetizer and they were overcooked. I got a tuna melt for my lunch - it arrived...More
