    Use the bathroom and wash your hands. The Dyson blade hand dryer is awesome.

    Red flag with the full craft brew kegs stored in the bathrooms. They have to be taken to where the tap lines are; I'm not cool with piss in my walk-in or keg box.

    Perfect post beach eats. Gorg interior & phenom service. Try the oyster sampler, old bay shrimp, lobster roll & a glass of Albariño or 1 of 50+ craft beers. Skip the lobster mac&cheese.
