The menu has a wide variety from pizza to fish tacos which is perfect for a traveling family. The sauce in the fish tacos was so good. The kids liked the chicken strips.

Best Clam Chowder! Long lines but so worth it. I loved the area, good customer service. Ate by the pier, nice view too. I ordered the calamari but I did not like it much.
