We took my out-laws, oops, I mean in-laws (HA HA HA) here for their 50th wedding anniversary dinner. We couldn't have picked a better place. The food was amazing, the service was on point and the drinks were great! What more could you ask for?

The clam chowder was amazing! I also had the Brussels sprouts which were delicious as well. Sit at the bar right on the street, people watching, enjoy your lunch and have a glass of wine!
