This time I went in the winter but on a really warm day. No seating outside but that was okay. We went for lunch again and the menu really hasn't changed. Other than about 8 grilled sandwich choices there is only the whole meal option with salad, pasta course and grilled meat or seafood. It's better when you can sit... More

We came here on a Saturday for lunch. We've been here plenty of times in the past and always enjoyed it. They have a four course special lunch for the bargain price of $15. In the past I've ordered the scallops and shrimp as an entrée, but this time they only offered shrimp without the scallops. They blamed it on... More

Good food, good service, and scenic location overlooking the ocean. Fun to eat on the front porch in the summer, but just as pleasant to sit warm and cozy by the front windows in the winter. early bird specials are a superb value!

My friend and I experienced a delicious 4 course lunch. I had the best crab cake ever! The treatment of mashes potato's, little balls crusted with panko, was so satisfying. All of this in a charming old house with a view of the ocean. It was a pleasant experience and a relaxing afternoon.

Food and service was excellent. However, at the time the check was submitted, we were surprised at the price of our Tito's and tonic. Advertises BYOB in November but we were offered the wine list.

This quaint restaurant is right next to the ocean and the beach. It is part of a Victorian Inn for overnight guests. In nice weather you can dine on the veranda or in a sun porch or in a very large dining hall. We were very pleased with our full course luncheon, including pasta, main dish, two sides, and dessert...
