Authentic New England seafood is the specialty, but there are options for those who desire food from the land. There is no shortage of waterfront ambience, outside seating is available on the dock and inside the atmosphere is casual.

He started as a busboy and gradually worked his way up, learning every aspect of the business until eventually he opened his first restaurant in 1986. Deidre grew up in Massachusetts' South Shore and on Martha's Vineyard Island. Living near the shore, loving local seafood, and having a passion for hospitality brought her to the business in the late eighties. Together they have
