My sandwich as usual was great. There is a great little tiki bar out back. But no Corona 🙁. Have to go somewhere else for happy hour

Small place attached to, of all things, a gas station (a very nice one). Great sandwiches, not at all run of the mill--BrieBLT, turkey with brie, caprese among others. Also good salads. Mostly indoor seating, some outdoor.

Had two outstanding meals here in September, but lunch this week was just OK. We had calamari, crab cake sandwich and fish tacos. The latter were really good. Crab cake was good, but I was surprised there were no soft shell crabs on the menu...More

The pound of steamed shrimp was very good ... Nice large juicy! The background music was very appropriate ... 4 Tops, Temps, Tom Petty, etc. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and knew his brews!! I would not recommend the steak salad!
