Came for happy hour, left very happy. I had the fish sliders: fabulous! Others I was with had the crab melt, very satisfying. The chowder in the sourdough bowl is great and much cheaper than many restaurants along the Wharf.

Had lunch there this past weekend and loved it. Our server was outstanding with great recommendations. I opted for the fried calamari and spicy fried fish sandwich. Both delicious and filling. This is a great spot to enjoy a few drinks and food.

Great Calamari and Chowder Bread Bowls. Interesting location. Out door, indoor and fire pit seating make it a comfortable location for an afternoon or evening meal or snack
