Both of us had broiled haddock. The haddock was fresh and perfectly broiled. Both the baked potato and vegetable were good. Had to wait a few minutes for a table but the locals ahead of us told us how good the food was and they were right.

Sea food and American and Italian fare. Food was great, price was right and staff very polite. My husband had the lobster and in had the 12 ounce prime rib with mushrooms in a delicious sauce which was fabulous and cooked just to my liking. Would eat there again.
