What a great little place! The food was excellent. Salmon with salad, crab cake on croissant were perfect. Also, nice selection of wine. We would definitely be back.

We enjoy this restaurant for the food and ambience. Inside seating includes pianist. Outside seating includes lovely view of Shelter Cove Marina and often live music. We bring our dog, who gets fresh water and a treat.
