Fun bar scene with many locals and a good appetizer menu. Nice, clean atmosphere. Parking was easy. Piano player at times. Check the schedule. The bartender is a character!

We went to the blue crab for dinner with the family very disappointing experience. My husband ordered the lobster ravioli and it was more like a lobster soup. The ravioli were floating in a sauce. The real issue was the steak. The piece of meat...More
