We have so many great memories of this place, but that is gone. The local staff and management has gone and the entries are skimpy. Don't expect much and that is what you will receive. As soon as you walk in the door, you sense...More

This was one of my sister's favorite spots. She loved coming here for the sunset views across the water. Unfortunately, the view was obstructed by very dirty windows and screens. Although it was near end of the summer season, for a place with a famous...More

Second time here. Food is always good. A bit expensive for a family style restaurant. Great views of the harbor and sunset. This restaurant is BYOB so you can save a little $ by not having to purchase alcohol. Be prepared for a corkage fee....More

Enjoyed the Upisland platters and keylime pie and the sunset was beautiful! Was a bit too noisy for a "romantic" dinner.

Our group unfortunately did not have an overall good experience. Shrimp was a bit undercooked and not flavorful, chicken was dry and tough, lobster roll was dry, grilled veggies didn't have that much flavor. 2 lb lobster, gazpacho and steak was good. Our server did...More

Staff, owner and food are all excellent. Had the Fried Seafood Platter! Pies were also incredible. Dry town so BYOB or wine. Perfect setting Asst the edge of this quiet little fishing village. Location of Quint's shop in Jaws. Just what you'd expect.
