It has been a tradition to have our first meal on vacation from Lucky 12 Tavern. Had the grilled tuna, while my wife had a crabcake. Both were EXCELLENT choices. We were not disappointed and will return again.

I did not find it clean or the food worth much at all. The clientele seemed more interested in drinking for effect than eating.

Stopped in for a drink and a little snack. Style is between a 60's diner and a bar....outdoor area to eat/drink. Staff were very friendly and the bartender helpful. Definitely would love to stop again
