Chose this restaurant on TA ratings. Service was excellent and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The oysters were wonderful but the baked potato was cold and the slaw not palatable at all. Trap Lager was a nice compliment for the oysters. Love local but...More

Home style. Delicious. It's been in business approaching 100 years. Local favorite. Prices are fine. Homemade rolls were outstanding. Staff was prompt and so nice. Perhaps the interior is a bit dated but that's part of the ambience. You won't be disappointed.
