    Awesome restaurant. Two points: First, bring plenty of adult beverages because the wait could be long. Second, appetizers and soups come out fast, entrees take awhile so order everything at once.

    By far the best dive seafood bar around. Food is great and price is awesome. Check out the specials each night, they will not disappoint.

    Start with a dozen clams and then just ask them what the best daily special is. Get that. Also, BYOB so come stocked!

    Go early since the good stuff sells out quick. Also be prepared to wait but it's worth it.

    It's BYOB so make sure you bring a cooler with some beers so when you're waiting 2 hours outside getting eaten alive by bugs at least you're drinking!

    A fun locals place. The bugs can be annoying but it's on the water. Bring your beer and just enjoy.

    Ridiculously crowded on Saturday around 7pm. 90 min wait for a table. Order takeout instead and eat at the public beach area just down the road.
